Stress taking toll on skin

Click to follow
STRESS at work is causing additional problems for thousands of eczema sufferers, a report claimed yesterday. According to a poll of 1,000 people with the skin disease, the competitive work environment of the 1990s makes the condition worse.

The result can be a loss of confidence, poor self-image and feelings of being stigmatised, which can affect performance at work. This in turn makes the condition worse and the downward spiral continues, claims the report, commissioned by Crookes Healthcare Ltd.
