A story book for children with dry, eczema prone skin.


Ellie has dry skin, which can be very irritating. Eddie has dry skin too.

He is a gecko after all...


Eczema can be a challenging condition at any age. For a child this all too visible and seriously itchy skin condition can make life very hard. We all want to fit in and looking different can make this difficult.

So can the often quite considerable modifications we have to make to our daily routines in order to keep the dreaded itch at bay. And 1 in 5 school children in the UK now have eczema.This is why the National Eczema Society is delighted to have partnered with Aveeno® brand for National Eczema Week 2014 to make this story book freely available to download and we are grateful to them for their support. 

Written by Penelope Harper this short story book introduces us to Ellie and her pet gecko Eddie and takes us through their day focussing on potential triggers and pitfalls to be avoided if you have dry to eczema-prone skin but, importantly, in a positive way.
