There is currently no cure for eczema, but we can learn about its triggers, we can understand and manage the condition, and we can treat and alleviate its effects. The Eczema Awareness Diploma Course is your guide to improving the lives of those suffering with eczema.
What is eczema? We open the course by detailing what eczema is, the skin condition we are typically referring to when we talk about eczema, as well as what is happening to our skin when we are affected by eczema. You’ll also learn about several different types of eczema and their general causes, with regards to genetics, environment and allergies.
The Eczema Awareness Diploma Course offers you vital information on how to manage the condition in infants and children. You’ll learn to recognise eczema at different stages of infancy and childhood, its common triggers and how to help children deal with itching.

You’ll learn how emollients, topical steroids, antihistamines, wet wrap therapy, phototherapy, and vitamins can help.
