Welcome to the Eczemapedia

Hello World,

I am Lhea J. -- a 24 year old Eczema Survivor.  Sure, I am a lot of things. I am a writer: essayist, poet, screenwriter and (aspiring!) novelist. I am a sales woman, an editor, unemployed and homeless.

This blog is not just about remedies, prescriptions, allergies and cures. This blog is about to how to handle an 8 hour workday; how to travel with sensitive skin, how to love yourself when you look in the mirror and how to date and love others when you have eczema

Eczema is not contagious. It can not be spread through kissing, sex or physical contact.  However, there is a genetic predisposition and the possibility of passing the rashing-tendency to your children or children's children.

Hopefully this blog helps someone- someone who's child has eczema (how embarrasing in childhood!), some adult who is battling eczema or someone whose spouse has eczema. 

I'm learning how to love me with eczema, hopefully you can love you as you begin to cure your eczema as well.
