The National Eczema Association has launched a blog on their website. I was honored to be asked to write the first post. "Well-moisturized infants less likely to develop eczema" is a summary of Eric Simpson and Hywel Williams' ongoing study of how moisturizing newborns provides them with barrier protection that can delay or maybe even prevent eczema from developing.
More posts are in the pipeline from other sources. The NEA expects that the blog will eventually feature the work of many different bloggers, including active scientists and clinicians as well as science writers. I look forward to discovering an ever-expanding community blogging eczema research, therapy, and coping strategies for parents and patients.
