Atopowe Team

Atopowe.pl is probably the first web portal in Poland, which from the very beginning helps the patients to overcome difficulties with treatment of atopis dermatitis.


As a chronic and visible the disease concerns also psychology – it brings out doubts and fear in both: patients and their families. For many of them the only emotional support that works is social support. In times of widespread digitalization of social life, such support comes with internet. Discussion forum on website www.atopowe.pl enables all the afflicted the exchange of experiences; the community support its members also by sharing information about meetings, workshops and conferences. The web portal contains also a lot of valuable information about the course of disease and treatment. For many users the web portal is important and plausible source of knowledge and place of encounter with others being in similarly difficult situation.
