Patient compliance is crucial to successful emollient therapy and studies have shown that educating patients (and parents or carers of children) about the causes of their condition and correct emollient application improves outcomes significantly. In addition to this, NICE Clinical Guideline 57 “Management of atopic eczema in children from birth up to the age of 12 years” also advises that they (patient and parent or carer) be educated by healthcare professionals on quantity and frequency of use of treatments, flare-ups and their management (using the stepped approach plan) and the recognition and treatment of infections.

In order to help you support your patients with the management of their eczema, psoriasis and other dry skin conditions, we have developed a range of resources and materials to educate them and encourage self-help and compliance. These are available for you to print simply by clicking on the relevant PDF icons below.

We also have a dedicated Kids Zone, designed to help children with their eczema, psoriasis or other dry skin conditions as well as supporting their parents and carers. The Kids Zone teaches children about their skin condition through the various fun-filled activities, games and crafts as well as steps that they can take to make each day better. This can be accessed by clicking on the Kids Zone icon below or from the navigation bar.
