Stress triggers flare-ups for some patients with eczema, with many parents observing their schooling children having worsened eczema during exams.
Eczema, in itself being an itchy, chronic condition, also creates stress. Learn how to manage stress with psychologist Ms June Lim.
5 September (Friday) – Venue, National Skin Centre Singapore Room 401, 12pm to 1pm
Topic: Mental health and Eczema: Manage your Stress and help your Skin
The program will be sharing by Ms June Lim over lunch (provided). June is a psychologist at Tan Tock Seng Hospital and have been a visiting Psychologist at National Skin Centre for more than a year.
This session is open to all who suffer from eczema, regardless of age. For those with children, you can bring them along but as I can’t make it for this session, do bring some ‘entertainment’ for your kids. Information on my blog is not pre-approved by NSC.
YOU MUST RSVP – It will then be possible for us to prepare lunch. If you’re coming, please email me ([email protected]) your name, mobile and email, number of adults & kids.

Terrific topic! I hope it is a well attended event. It is of interest that research suggests stress, through the release of natural corticosteroids, dries the skin (ready for fight or flight?). So, extra use of moisturiser when stressed will reduce the risk of flare-up.
Thanks Dr B for dropping by and yes, it’s so important to manage stress isn’t it? Even when you don’t have eczema, there’s already plenty of stress in our current hectic lifestyle!
Have a good day ahead!
