In addition to regularly operating a patient helpline, Allergy UK launched several new resources for eczema diagnosis, management and treatment for National Eczema Week: 13 to 19 September 2021.

This included factsheets introducing eczema and its symptoms, common trigger and irritants, possible interactions with food allergy, and several how-to segments on caring for eczema. They also published downloadable infographics for young patients on the basics of eczema and its management. 

For World Atopic Eczema Day, 14 September 2021, Allergy UK recorded a podcast: “Exploring the challenges of living with eczema.” The podcast featured Holly Shaw, a Nurse Advisor at Allergy UK, and guest speaker Stephen who has lived with eczema for many years.
