Eczema

There are many types of eczema and not all are driven by allergy.  In children especially there is often confusion between Atopic (suggesting an allergic background) Eczema and Seborrhoeic (non-allergic) Eczema.

Very often parents subject their children to unnecessarily restrictive diets based on mistaken observation of what they think made their child’s eczema worse.

Stop guessing: find out with a formal, structured allergy test.  With an increasing number of children with Atopic Eczema suffering also from dangerous food allergy it’s better you find that out in the doctor’s office than in A&E and in a crisis state.
