NTV news anchor opens up on chronic skin condition she is battling

NTV news anchor Gladys Gachanja recently opened up on a skin condition she has been battling since she was a child called Atopic Dermatitis.

In a post seen by Pulse Live, the journalist said that she has lived with the condition all her life and she has outgrown major effects caused by the skin disease.

Ms Gachanja disclosed that her son was born with the same condition and is still on the journey that can be tough sometimes.

The news anchor made the revelations as she hosted a guest who has suffered from the same in her Heath Diary show on NTV.

I have lived with Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema) all my life and my son was born with it. Though I have outgrown its major effects, my son is still on that journey and some seasons can be more difficult than others. So listening to Dorothy Muchere, an Eczema Warrior share her struggle with this chronic condition on @healthdiaryntv affirms there are many living with this condition. Dr. Winnie Njenga a dermatologist, speaks on the importance of creating awareness on Atopic Eczema as many patients have had to live with the stigma that comes with having patches on their skin. More on this helpful conversation,” wrote Gladys Gachanja.

Atopic dermatitis (eczema) is a condition that makes your skin red and itchy. It's common in children but can occur at any age. It is long lasting (chronic) and tends to flare periodically. It may be accompanied by asthma or hay fever.
