The World Health Organization ranks eczema amongst the top five non-fatal diseases in the world. This misunderstood disease impacts approximately 25% of Australian children and more than 5% of adults. A visible skin disorder with reactions often unseen and underrated, many individuals and their families experience social isolation, anxiety, confusion, financial pressure and deteriorating health due to this complex and chronic skin disease. Support is growing for families affected, but awareness of their challenges is lacking.
FishFilms produced a series of stories from those living with Eczema in Australia.
FishFilms also shot a series of images for the Eczema Support Australia website.
