Introduction:

 

As the seasons change, so does our skin. Eczema sufferers may dread this time of year, as their skin can react to the dry conditions with nasty flare-ups. Eczema can cause extreme itchiness, not only leading to discomfort, but also to mental stress like anxiety and depression.

While trying to manage these conditions, many people will seek Nutritional or Chinese Medicine advice to manage their symptoms. In this talk, we have invited Dr Derrick Lam to share his Traditional Chinese Medicine clinical experience in the prevention and management of eczema. Dr Lam will also share the dietary recommendations by the Dietetics, Food and Nutritional Science Team, and thus propose a combination of traditional Chinese medicine and Western nutritional food therapy to control eczema.
