Hello all, my name is Katie and I have been an Eczema and sensitive skin sufferer since birth (1996 b*tch). My Eczema has always been the one part of me I hid and felt embarrassed of. I’ll never forget the painful memories of trying to hide my eczema by covering it with foundation for any kind of social event (Not a good idea, burns like hell) or when girls would bully me for being in jeans and long sleeves at parties when they were in dresses. I know a lot of other people feel the same way and sometimes we look at ourselves and think we are disgusting. THIS IS NOT OKAY and is something I want to change. As I’ve got older I’ve realised I am not the problem, people’s reactions to my skin are. EDUCATE yourself before you open your mouth and speak of somebody else’s body. To this day I still remember negative comments people have made about my skin. I hope Itch & Bitch can be a place of positivity and support, lets’s show ourselves and each other that our skin is beautiful, flare or no flare. Let’s really start loving the skin we’re in.
My name is Daisy I’ve been struggling with eczema for as long as I can remember, when I was younger my skin was always a taboo subject, my mother would cover me in ointment and wrap me in bandages most nights putting mittens on my hands to stop me scratching. I felt embarrassed having sleepovers or talking to friends about it as the thought of being known as the girl covered in rashes was too upsetting. I tried my best to hide something that was a massive part of my life for a long time. After 25 years my eczema began to get more severe, I finally started to listen to my body and what it needs, today I am in a far better place. It has been a long slow process but I’ve learnt a lot about myself and how best to care for my body. I hope my knowledge can help and inspire others while I also still learning.
