I have been dealing with topical steroid withdrawal for nearly 4 years and prior to that, a lifetime of eczema! My son also has eczema, as well as 3 allergies and carries an epipen. He’s allergic to peanut, dairy and egg white.

I am part of an online skin community where I support others going through skin conditions, mainly eczema and TSW and advocate for the existence of TSW as medical professionals don’t often, if ever, recognise its existence.

Not only can I empathise with having a skin condition myself but my first time parenting being overshadowed by fighting against steroids for my son due to my experiences and advocating for his allergies.

Therefore I am constantly on the hunt for events and opportunities to connect with others suffering with skin conditions and allergies.
