    Who can my fiancee talk to about understanding eczema?

    Related Topics
    I am a mum who has Eczema myself and is now watching my 1 year old son start to struggle through it as well.

    Support from my fiancee is minimal as he does not understand the condition and is of the belief that my mother caused my eczema to get worse through treating it. He will not speak to our local GP as he believes that the local GP is just getting paid by the drug companies.

    I am now a desperate mum that does not want to hide treating my son from his father. It took my son getting an infection in his eczema before he would let me do anything.

    The internet is a poor substitute for a real professionals diagnosis.

    I would be eternally grateful for any information or support that you can provide.

    It is very difficult to explain to people who do not suffer from eczema the full impact of the disease. There are many misconceptions and falsehoods in the public perception about eczema, however education is the key.
    Your fiancee needs to read some very basic easily understood information about the disease or talk to someone who can explain the whys and hows to him.
    It would also be helpful to obtain a referral from your GP and visit a Dermatologist for the latest and most up to date treatments.
