The age of children

Statistics show that those ages younger than three years-old tend to have allergic disorder to certain foods. On the other hand, older kids are more likely to grow out of them.

Other symptoms

Symptoms such as runny nose, diarrhea, vomiting, and rashes are pretty common to be associated with a condition of moderate-severe eczema in infants.

We cannot say that having these symptoms means that eczema is definitely related to food, but these symptoms are often found in infants with eczema (moderate /severe) affected by food.

Having known /identifiable food allergy

For children with eczema and also have known food allergy, there is a greater chance for this known food allergy to affect the problem. Moreover, they also tend to have eczema that is influenced by other dietary sources.

Can eczema be prevented with diet during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

Currently, there is still no clearly answer for that question. However, some studies are continuously going to see whether the manipulating diet during pregnancy and breastfeeding can be effective enough to reduce the risk of developing the onset of eczema in high risk families /individuals.

Experts say that this skin disorder may run in families. In fact, most infants with atopic eczema have at least one parent (mother or father) or one family member with the same problem /some types of atopic disorder (such as hay fever, asthma, or allergy).

If you are an individual with high risk of eczema or if you have eczema, and now you are being pregnant – see your doctor for more advice about the appropriate steps you need to follow to reduce the risk of inheriting the problem to your baby after pregnancy!
