AbbVie is releasing a new documentary film, “Under My Skin: Untold Stories of Life with Eczema,”  which debuted at South by Southwest 2023 in Austin, Texas. 

The film, directed by Redglass Pictures, features the physical and emotional stories of three individuals with eczema to help inspire others to seek appropriate support and live a life unhindered by their disease. U.S. viewers can stream the film on The Roku Channel starting April 1, 2023.

“Eczema is so much more than a rash,” says Alexis, a patient advocate who has lived with eczema since her teenage years and is featured in the film. “It’s sleepless nights. It’s missing out on things that you really wanted to do. It’s a roller coaster to wake up and feel like you have to cover a part of yourself.”

Rob, featured in the film, shares the physical and mental impact of his atopic dermatitis, the most common form of eczema, and had the courage to speak to his dermatologist. Also featured is Lanese who discusses her lifelong journey with eczema, and the moment she took control of her eczema with her dermatologist after she realized her daughter was also suffering from the skin condition.

"AbbVie is proud to support the eczema community, which includes a range of unique experiences in the journey of living with the condition,” adds Mike Rancourt, vice president of U.S. dermatology, AbbVie. “‘Under My Skin’ aims to help shed light on the impact of eczema through the lens of people living with the disease while also highlighting the resilient and supportive spirit within the eczema community.”

“As a filmmaker, we are grateful to bring the stories of these courageous individuals to light, as they show the realities of living with eczema are more than skin deep,” said Sarah Klein and Tom Mason, co-directors of Redglass Pictures. “From Alexis’ realization that she was not alone in her struggles, to Lanese’s determination to not let eczema dictate her life, to Rob’s courage to seek help for his eczema – each story is incredibly inspiring.”
