Could Food Allergies Be Making Your Eczema Worse?
Eczema is a skin condition that affects 30 million Americans. It is characterized by a rash that may blister, peel, or itch. It can be located anywhere, but it is most common on the elbows or behind the knees. Allergies are a common trigger of eczema, and unfortunately, not all allergens are easy to spot. Food allergies in particular can be easy to overlook. However, with up to one third of eczema sufferers also having an underlying food allergy, this may be an avenue worth exploring.
