Which foods can cause eczema?

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.
Although eczema may be caused by a large number of environmental triggers, approximately 40 percent of children with eczema also have a food allergy. Allergies to egg, milk, peanut, soy and wheat have a strong link with eczema symptoms.
