The impact of eczema on individuals and their families is substantial. Beyond the physical symptoms, eczema also brings psychosocial burdens that reduce well-being and quality of life.


This QUM Alliance video, ‘If you only knew’, highlights the experience for some people living with eczema.

Pharmacists have a central role to support individuals and families who live with eczema.


Working with consumers and medical experts, we have developed a range of evidence-informed education interventions and resources to support improved quality use of eczema medicines and treatment strategies.
