The National Eczema Society
The National Eczema Society is the only organisation in the UK and one of
the most established organisations worldwide dedicated to the needs of people with eczema,
dermatitis and sensitive skin.
The National Eczema Society was formed in 1975 when a newspaper article, prompting a large public response, indicated a vital need for an information and support service for people with eczema and their carers. From small beginnings the Society has grown to provide a comprehensive information and advice service, an extensive network of local contacts, an expanding network of local support, funds for research and a campaigning voice on behalf of people with eczema.
NES is the only organisation in the UK and one of the most established organisations worldwide dedicated to the needs of people with eczema, dermatitis and sensitive skin.
NES can help by providing the practical information and support needed to manage your skin problem effectively. The helpline of the Information Department can provide you with full access to the latest information through membership, providing support for people with eczema and their carers.
NES knows and understands the related social, personal and psychological effects of eczema and can help you manage your lifestyle accordingly to complement and support effective medical treatment and care.
