In patients with eczema that is difficult to manage, it is important to consider the possibility that they are allergic to the topical medications or emollients being used to manage their skin disease. This group of patients may have allergic contact dermatitis (ACD) to topical corticosteroids (TCS), antibiotics, or the excipients and preservatives used in their topical medications or emollients being used for skin care. For this group of patients, topical corticosteroids or the excipients in their vehicle may actually worsen their underlying disease and are the focus of this article.

CONCLUSIONS: According to our study, no genetic variation to predict recalcitrant AD was identified, suggesting that clinical manifestation, rather than genetic variations of AD patients is more likely to be an important factor in predicting the prognosis of AD. Further large-scale studies on the correlation between genetic variation and recalcitrant AD are needed. PMID: 29676071 [PubMed]

A recent genome-wide association study (GWAS) identified 99 loci that contain genetic risk variants shared between asthma, hay fever and eczema. Many more risk loci shared between these common allergic diseases remain to be discovered, which could point to new therapeutic opportunities.

CONCLUSIONS: A high number of affected children were identified. Some children being undiagnosed and some not receiving satisfactory treatment. These results suggest that additional studies to evaluate treatment procedures in order to improve healthcare for allergic children are warranted. PMID: 29621411 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Abstract The incidence of atopic diseases, including atopic dermatitis (AD), food allergies, allergic rhinitis, and asthma, has increased in recent decades, and currently affects approximately 20% of the population. Atopic march is the development of AD in infancy and subsequent food allergies, allergic rhinitis, and asthma in later childhood. Patients with infantile eczema may develop typical symptoms of AD, allergic rhinitis, and asthma at certain ages. Some patients' symptoms persist for several years, whereas others may have resolution with aging. Development of these diseases is strongly influenced by the fol...

Recent guidelines recommend early peanut introduction (EPI) beginning around 4-6 months in infants with either severe eczema and/or egg allergy, and around 6 months for all other infants. Caregiver preferences for such practices are unkown.
