Eczema caused by food

Atopic dermatitis, more generally called eczema, is a skin condition. Eczema appears most commonly on the face, neck, elbows, wrists, knees, behind the ears and the scalp.

The main symptom is an itchy rash that tends to run in families; occurs in people with their allergic problems such as asthma; and follows a pattern on the skin that varies by ages.

Allergic reactions to certain foods are thought to stimulate T-cell migration to the skin, triggering eczema and other inflammatory skin reactions.
