As part of her work and commitment to helping those suffering from the various kinds of eczema that afflicts over 30 million Americans each year, Ines Cano Uribe has compiled a list of groups and individuals you may wish to contact in order to get assistance and more information about the eczema condition and how it impacts those who have been discovered to be suffering from eczema.
Of course, first and foremost, you must immediately get in touch with your primary physician. While you may end up being referred to a specialist, such as a dermatologist, oftentimes you own doctor can get you immediate relief from the incessant itching that accompanies a case of eczema. Additionally, your personal physician can help you to identify which of the many forms of eczema may be affecting you (there are close to a dozen different types of eczema that can be diagnosed).
Next, consider working with a skin specialist to manage particularly difficult and continuous cases of eczema. In this instance, ask your personal physician for a recommendation to a qualified and recognized dermatologist. For particularly stubborn and chronic forms of eczema, this can be a good bet for you to finally get some much deserved relief from your pain and suffering.
Also, look at organizations that are devoted to increasing awareness and understanding of eczema. One of the most recognized nonprofit groups in this field is the National Eczema Organization (NEO), which was formed in 1988 and has been instrumental in generating better knowledge and resources for sufferers of eczema. The second is the British Equivalent of NEO, which is the National Eczema Society (NES). The National Eczema Society was formed in 1975 and produced a number of information to help promote a better understanding of how the condition affects children with eczema.
Finally, do not forget those in the trenches, by which is meant fellow eczema sufferers. You can rest assured that such people have spent thousands of their own hours investigating and educating themselves about this illness and have created blogs and websites that share their knowledge and experience with others in need.
As you can see, you will never be alone when it comes to fighting eczema!
