In my experience, living with eczema can be an attack on one’s self-esteem and often changes our self-perception. Eczema can cause self-doubt based on how you believe others view the condition and can give you a flawed sense of reality. ~ Imani Bashir
Bashir goes in-depth about not wanting to be around people because of the way her skin looked. How she would scratch her skin until it bled, wearing long sleeves/pants in the summer, and so much more. It’s definitely worth checking out!!
