The Eczema Resource page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the National Eczema Association. It is intended to provide information on Eczema and to streamline and simplify the way those with Eczema may find assistance paying for their medications.

Eczema is a general term encompassing various inflamed skin conditions. One of the most common forms of eczema is atopic dermatitis (or "atopic eczema"). Approximately 10 percent to 20 percent of the world population is affected by this chronic, relapsing, and very itchy rash at some point during childhood.

Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) are programs offered by pharmaceutical companies to help those most in need gain access to their medications at no or low cost. Each program has varying financial and insurance guidelines - when in doubt, call the program. To find the specific PAP information for a specific drug click on the list below. You will then be taken to a listing of all the programs available for that medication.

NeedyMeds and the National Eczema Association neither promote nor endorse the therapies listed below nor the supporters of this page. This page is for educational purposes only.
