What Adele’s Eczema Diagnosis Does for the Rest of Us

Written by Anika Brahmbhatt
Posted on May 11, 2021

Adele is among the celebrities who have publicly discussed experiencing the symptoms of eczema. By taking this step, the singer has helped make the eczema room bigger, contributing to awareness and discussion of the condition around the world, and helping others with eczema feel less alone.

For some people, eczema flares up following exposure to certain triggers, and Adele noted that for her, boiling her son’s baby bottles caused her symptoms to flare.

Extended exposure to water is a common trigger among members of MyEczemaTeam. “I don’t know why, but the water just causes me to instantly flare up!” one member wrote. Another said, “Don’t use warm water at all. It just dries out the skin even more.”

Members Make the Community Stronger

Since MyEczemaTeam launched in 2017, the network has grown to become over 35,000 members strong — that's a big room! Just as Adele’s announcement amplifies the voice of those with eczema, each new member on MyEczemaTeam makes the community stronger.
