The aim of atopy school is to improve both compliance and the quality of life of patients and their families.

The school has been created and specifically dedicated to the treatment of patients suffering from atopic eczema (commonly known as eczema). It is run by dermatologists and nurses that serves the patient in order to specifically address his or her issues, ie. understand the disease and its evolution.

The atopy school is first and foremost a forum for listening and exchanging, both for parents and children. We hold highly interactive workshops or therapy groups organized in the presence of doctors and nurses. During these meetings, the patients can freely talk about their disease, fears and daily life. These educational workshops are an excellent tool to learn, share knowledge and experiences.

The difficulties inherent in the treatment, the lack of knowledge, and isolation often cause despair among children and their parents. They need to talk about their disease, their daily life and fears. This takes time, listening skills, counselingand professionals to talk to and we can help improve your child’s life everyday.
