Welcome to the book page for ” Living with eczema – mom asks, doctor answers “. This page was created to support MarcieMom of for the book she co-authored with Prof. Hugo and contains all the information you need to purchase, study and use this practical book on eczema.


In 2009, MarcieMama’s daughter was diagnosed with eczema at the age of 2 weeks. MarciMama knows firsthand how hard it is to care for a baby girl who itched 24/7 and how difficult it is to care for a child with eczema. At around 7 months old, Marcy’s eczema was brought under control after a consultation with Prof. Hugo van Bever. Since her eczema has improved, Marcy-Mama has passionately devoted her energy to helping families with children with eczema, including creating the website, support groups and illustrating the children’s book “Animals A to Z Don’t Scratch!” to persuade young children not to scratch.


Professor Hugo is the doctor who first encouraged MarcyMom to reach out to other parents, as many are going through the same struggle. In 2013, he invited her to co-author a book about eczema and their collaboration blossomed together. From the book title, chapter selection, and content, this book is written by two authors who know life with eczema intimately and dedicate their energy to helping families with eczema. Knowing how many questions parents have about eczema, there is a section in each chapter
