My Eczema Story In Pick Me Up Magazine

Hey guys,

Just thought I'd let you know that I'm in the most recent issue of this week's 'Pick Me Up' magazine which came out yesterday. It's only 68p so grab a copy!



After having written the newsletter for Talkhealth last month I was approached by Pick Me Up to include my story in their magazine. A proud moment! Hopefully my condition will strike a chord with many other eczema sufferers all over the UK and in turn they may look into Topical Steroid Withdrawal if it is the next path they need to take.


*for obvious copyright reasons I'm only showing a small thumbnail of the magazine to show that I have been featured.

    1. Thanks Louise :D Hope you are doing well? Luckily it was by sheer luck that I was asked to contribute otherwise I probably wouldn't have got it. Shane has tried to approach these magazines with his fundraising running story but to no avail.

  2. Wow well done Jenny! Wish I could grab a copy too here in NZ! You are so wonderful in sharing your story publicly and spreading the word about dangers of topical steroid overuse. Hope you are having easy days lately. xxx

    1. Thanks lovely :) They do offer it as a download but I'm not sure how it works really. I'm not too bad thanks - my skin isn't great but I can deal with it. Hope you are feeling better? xx

  5. I pick all the time at home. I used to pick all the time, even in public as a child. Now I do it all the time, but only at home.
