World Atopic Eczema Day

Every year on September 14, the world is held International Atopic Eczema Day or World Atopic Eczema Day. This day was introduced in 2018 at the initiative of the GlobalSkin organization and the European Federation, which unites associations of patients with allergies and respiratory diseases (EFA). The purpose of the day is to spread information about this disease.

Atopic dermatitis or eczema is a skin disease that is manifested by dryness and itching and is usually chronic (inflammatory or recurrent). This disease is quite common – there is not a dermatologist in the whole world who would not make such a diagnosis at least once. According to statistics, 0.5-2% of the population of European countries suffer from atopic eczema, among children this indicator is more threatening – 25%. In 80% of cases, children under the age of 5 are diagnosed.

On this day, the focus is on patients with atopic eczema and their families. They have to endure inconvenience and pain, social isolation and significant financial losses. Celebrating World Atopic Eczema Day is a good opportunity for everyone to unite in the fight against the disease.
