Can I Tell You about Eczema

The idea behind this booklet – getting children and teenagers to learn about their skin problem in solidarity with the featured child – is excellent.

Billed as a guide for‘friends, family and professionals’, it invites readers to learn about eczema from the perspective of one girl, in a language that a child can understand.

It is suitable for young people aged seven and up, and would be useful for school nurses and other healthcare professionals working with children.

The medical content regarding diagnosis of eczema and the treatments available is accurate and up to date. However, the style of the book and the pictures may not appeal to children and young people, especially when they are competing against available online information.
