Can certain foods give you eczema?
Eczema or atopic dermatitis is a genetic condition of the body. It is a type of skin rash characterized by itchiness, redness, and scaly skin. Eczema may be accompanied by oozing blisters surrounded by red or discolored areas from frequent scratching.
The most common places it appears on are the knees, elbows, cheeks, and extremities, even though it can be seen on other parts of the body as well. There is no cure for eczema but the goals for treating eczema are to identify the triggers and then find which treatment works the best for you.
Eczema occurs most commonly in children. Some 10% to 20% of children will develop eczema worldwide, with about half of those being diagnosed before the age of one. Most children with eczema will either completely outgrow their symptoms or find that their symptoms improve significantly by the time they reach adulthood. About 10% of eczema cases occur for the first time in adolescents or adults.
In most people who have atopic eczema there is no apparent reason why the eczema may ‘flare-up’ from time to time. However, some flare-ups may be caused (triggered) or made worse by irritants to the skin, or other factors. Less than 1 in 10 children with atopic eczema have a food sensitivity (allergy) which can make symptoms worse. In general, it is young children with severe eczema who may have a food sensitivity as a trigger factor. The most common foods which trigger eczema symptoms in some people include: cow’s milk, eggs, soya, wheat, fish, and nuts.
