Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

- Hello Doctor, I've had eczema for a few months and it's affecting my quality of life. - Can you describe your symptoms to me? - My skin is dry and red and it's itchy all the time. It started on my legs, but now I also have patches on my arms and my face. I have been very stressed recently. - Stress can aggravate skin conditions. I'm going to prescribe you a topical cream to reduce the inflammation. - Thank you, I hope that will work!

Let me take a look at that...
