For those of you who owns an allergy or eczema or skincare related blog/ site, do submit your blog in the comment form below if you like to review the Living with Eczema book.
This book is also helpful for patients and parents who feel alone in their disease. MarcieMom is frank and open about her experience in taking care of Marcie’s eczema. I found “Living with Eczema: Mom Asks, Doc Answers!” to be a good blend of background information, up-to-date science, and practical advice and would recommend this book to any eczema patient or parent.

I just love the idea of this book. It’s not just a book with explains what eczema is and how to treat it, although it has all that too. It is an insight into a patient/doctor relationship, one where the specialist has the time and the knowledge to answer EVERY question.

book is excellently laid out and written and will be an asset to those who live with eczema and also for those who don’t but want a better understanding of the condition
The book is a useful guide to understand eczema better and focus the attention on how to make living with eczema more comfortable.
Paola’s full review of the book here. Paola Bassanese, MA IR/ES, ITEC Dip., is the founder of Energya Ltd, a company specialising in stress management solutions. Read more about her sharing on managing eczema as a massage therapist.
The conversational tone of the book makes it much easier to read for an exhausted parent than a bunch of dry scientific articles.
Natalia’s full review of the book here. Natalia is a Registered Dietitian (RD) with Master of Science in Nutrition Education from Columbia University. Read her interview series on EczemaBlues.com (Meis’ blog) on Toddler Nutrition here.
True to MarcieMom form, she thoroughly dives into the science of eczema in the chapter, “normal skin vs. eczema skin”. Those particularly interested in the science of the body, skin and eczema will enjoy this chapter as it connects the dots of how & why the body responds the way it does.
Andrea’s full review of the book here. Andrea had shared on EczemaBlues.com (Meis’ blog) on Mom E-votional series: No Longer Allergic!, Someone Managed Eczema series: On Childcare and Mompreneur interview.
This combination of clinical information, questioned and then made understandable to everyday parents is a great mix and quite unique amongst other eczema literature out there. Remembering what it was like to be an exhausted, overwhelmed eczema mum myself, I would have found this book to be a great resource at the beginning of our eczema journey.
