Scratching The Surface: An Eczema Story By Ruth Nabweteme

Cover: Paperback
Sale priceUsh 50,000


Scratching the Surface: An Eczema Story delves into the psychology of never giving up, no matter how much the odds may be stacked against you. It is a coming of age story involving three generations of women from the same family in Kampala, Uganda.

At once an engaging memoir and easy to digest reference book using the hereditarily inherited disease of eczema as a backdrop, the author and protagonist weaves a tale of dispair, resolve and ultimately, triumph.

A parent who worries about their parenting capabilities is a good parent because this demonstrates that they are prioritizing the health of their child.
The adage by which this story is held together resonates throughout and encapsulates what the author is all about.

"Just as it is my role as the director of operations in a social enterprise working with small scale female farmers to help them improve their yields, I realized it was also my duty to share my experiences with parents suffering through sleepless nights due to their children's averse skin conditions. I wanted them to know they were not alone and that there was light at the end of the tunnel."
