    A New Eczema Consultation Tool Launched

    The TalkingEczema tool has been developed in the UK, and it is hoped that it will help patients tell their doctor how their eczema is impacting their life.

    The patient fills in a questionnaire, and a graph is produced using the answers which will help the doctor get a full picture of the patient's well-being.

    It is hoping that the tool will help provide a more personalised treatment plan for eczema sufferers.

    A pilot was done with the tool and has had some positive results, with all patients saying that they'd recommend the tool to other eczema sufferers.

    There is a website about it which says that it is for healthcare workers,, and you can also read more about it below

    Three Ladies and The Allergy Law Project

    Three lawyers from the United States have founded the Allergy Law Project, the Las Vegas Review Journal has reported.

    The three ladies all have children with food allergies and are working to provide the right information about the law and food allergies.

    The article is an interesting read about how one of these ladies, Homa Woodrum, found that her first child had developed food allergies. From there she started a blog which provided recipes for families dealing with food allergies.

    The blog ran a story which caught the attention of an attorney from Maryland, Mary Vargas.

    Woodrum met Laurel Francoeur, a lawyer from Massachusetts, who came up with the idea of the Allergy Law Project. Together the three ladies provide free information online about the allergy law in the United States.

    You can read more about their story below
