Who am I: My name is Cally and my mission is to help provide evidence-based research, health literacy, and community health and wellness to as many people as possible, particularly in the context of eczema. I also love writing and storytelling, hence the website name- and unorthodox style of communicating.

My Blog Content: I’ve specifically made this blog to depict life with chronic eczema. Eczema is a multifaceted grab bag of a disease that has so many intersecting health applications, there’s never a lack of content to talk about. From new research in biologics, to holistic practices (from Eastern traditional medicines to Western herbalism), new eczema community events, movements for or against topicals, social awareness movements, changes to healthcare/policies, eczema in the arts, new products on the market, and personal anecdotes from eczema sufferers- you really can go down a rabbit hole trying to learn about it all. I’ll try to keep things entertaining and channel the storyteller vibe as I delve deeper into the world of an incurable, but non-fatal condition.
