For families whose children live with Paediatric and Primary Lymphoedema

Management and Treatment


I am often asked how do I look after my lymphoedema?  This question is often asked on both our adult and family’s support groups.  I am a great believer in self-care, but I also believe that everyone whose has lymphoedema should have access to services from the NHS if you are in the UK and when you live in a country with a different health care system then that country should also provide lymphoedema management and treatment services.  Lymphoedema is a costly

When asked how do I look after my lymphoedema my priorities would be:

  • Skincare
  • Compression
  • Massage
  • Get Moving
