Dermatologist could provide a card with is a telephone number (help line) to the patients with atopic dermatitis. They can call when ever they feel stress, or in case they have questions about their disease to this help line. Expertises will give physiological support and details regarding atopic dermatitis and explain to them how important is to take constantly their medicine in order to improve and eliminate the symptoms they have. If patient don’t feel to give their name, they could make a subscription to the plycological support line, by taking a number, and every time they call they can give this number to the nurse or the phycologist

Hi Antigoni,

Thank you for your submission! It's definitely a great way to provide resources for people with AD who would need to learn about how to deal with a stressful situation. I would love to know how you see the split between medical specialists for AD vs. the psychologists or do you see it as a single resource center? Also would love to know how you see it being a way to tackle the bullying?

Welcome to the community and we're excited to see how you take it ahead!

I was thinking of a unique center, where people with AD can call any time they have questions to ask about their disease, or if they are living bullying in their environment and need help, with psychological support they can feel strong and find the courage to speak out, take guidelines how to handle such kind of situation. bulling is happening to scared and insecure people. it is important to educate the patient first of all.
