Eczema and Food Allergy

The onset of eczema frequently coincides with introduction of certain foods into the infant’s diet.  Common food allergies and possible triggers to eczema in children include egg, milk, peanut, soy and wheat.  Overall, about 20-30% of children with eczema have food allergies to one or more of these foods.

If your child has eczema there may be an underlying food allergy contributing.  We can further evaluate this to see if foods are a trigger to your child’s eczema and avoiding the food allergen(s) can have a significant benefit in improving eczema.
