  • Ethics: 18/CEN/152

Our eczema study is now recruiting. We are looking for volunteers with a doctor’s diagnosis of eczema, to test a cream treatment which contains Kānuka oil. Participants must be aged 18 – 65yrs, and able to travel to one of the participating pharmacies (listed below). They will be supplied this treatment free of charge, and answer weekly questionnaires about their eczema symptoms and treatment. Participants will return to the pharmacy six weeks later for a second visit. Reasonable costs associated with participating will be reimbursed.
