#Food, #Allergies, and #Eczema at #DadChat with Mei

Living with Eczema by @MarcieMom

Do your kids suffer from itching? Lack of sleep? We all know how much food can affect our well-being. Many of us suffer from allergies that are food-related or from other sources. These chronic problems are especially difficult for our children who often are too young to understand the pain and discomforts they feel. For parents, NOTHING is worse than seeing your child in pain (or discomfort). Thursday September 18 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. PT/9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET we will discuss this issue with co-host Marcie Mom aka Mei, our favorite #DadChat regular, from Singapore.

Marcie-Mom-and-Marcie-at-libraryMarcieMom, also known as Mei, started blogging about eczema and helping eczema families in her unique way since 2011, a year after her daughter Marcie was diagnosed with eczema.  She co-authored Living with Eczema: Mom Asks, Doc Answers and illustrated the book cover and another children book A to Z Animals are not Scratching!. Mei chairs a national eczema support group in Singapore and donated to set up a fund for eczema patients requiring financial assistance. She has helped many parents through her blog EczemaBlues.

Mei has generously arranged for 2 sets of book prizes for this week’s #DadChat! Each set includes her new book, Living with Eczema: Mom Asks, Doc Answers and “Allergic Diseases In Children: The Science, The Superstition and the Stories,” by Professor Hugo van Bever. As usual at #DadChat, YOU will have to earn the prize/giveaways!
