Section 5: eczema
Having eczema in college can be unpleasant and embarrassing. No one wants to walk around with itchy and inflamed skin in front of their new friends. If you have eczema, it is important to take care of your flare-ups and not ignore them. Be sure to bring plenty of lotions with you to college and bandages if you need them. If long baths help you, it is important to realize most colleges do not have tubs. Some schools though have dorms with private bathrooms. If you require long bathing sessions to help your eczema, consider talking to disability services about an accommodation. The last thing you want is for people to think you are a shower hog! Here is a video where one student talks about what it is like dealing with eczema in college.
