Eczema: What People Don't See (Infographic)

Posted on January 22, 2018

There's so much more to eczema than meets the eye. Below the surface, living with eczema can mean nights of relentless itching, moments of embarrassment, and alternate days when we seem "fine." We know that eczema comes with many possible combinations of symptoms, many of which appear invisible to outsiders. Most people don't see the ups and downs we experience.


On MyEczemaTeam.com, the social network and online support group for people living with eczema, members discuss the chronic nature of the eczema and its hidden symptoms. Throughout the year we will share themes we see come up time and time again on MyEczemaTeam. We chose the image of an iceberg to represent eczema symptoms because the life-impacting implications of an eczema diagnosis aren't obvious on the surface. Please share to raise eczema awareness!

This list is by no means exhaustive. What symptoms would you add?
