Washington: Increasing evidence indicates that atopic dermatitis is a precursor to allergic diseases rather than a consequence. And now, dermatologists are advising parents of infants and young children affected by this common skin condition to be aware of the potential for future food allergies.Atopic dermatitis, one of the most common forms of eczema in this family of inflammatory skin diseases, is a chronic disease marked by red, cracked and itchy skin.
Although this study and others confirm the strong correlation between atopic dermatitis and food allergies, proper testing for a food allergy – as recommended in the new guidelines – is critical in determining if an actual food allergy exists.Speaking at the 69th Annual Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (Academy), dermatologist Hanifin, discussed the link between atopic dermatitis and food allergies.
