Action on eczema

As many as one in five children suffer with eczema and many of them risk stares or taunts about their hereditary condition. The National Eczema Society Schools' Pack provides a helpful mixture of information, reassurance and opportunities for classroom research and discussion. The activities are customised for different age groups. Younger children might draw the picture of an itch or explore the meaning of words like allergy or emollient. Older pupils can act as agony aunts or examine press coverage of discoveries in dermatology. There is also practical advice for teachers and parents.
