The occurrence of food hypersensitivity reactions and the relation to the sensitization to grass and trees in atopic dermatitis patients 14 years of age and older
Conclusion: The significant relation was found between the reactions to peanuts and walnuts and sensitization to grass and trees, another significant relation was found between the sensitization to grass and celery and between the sensitization to trees and apple.
CONCLUSION AND CLINICAL IMPORTANCE: This study demonstrates that a shorter EDT is possible if the allergic pruritus and inflammation are initially controlled with a short course of glucocorticoids. This shortened trial is likely to improve owner adherence and facilitate the diagnosis of food allergy. PMID: 31617265 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
For this ‘From the Pages of Allergy Watch’ reviews from several recent issues were selected which review articles about Allergic Skin Diseases, the focus of this issue of the Annals. The first article describes a unique minimally invasive method of skin tape stripping to identify infants with atopic derm atitis who are at increased risk for food allergy. The next study investigates the difference between IgE sensitivity and clinical reactivity to foods in children with atopic dermatitis. The last investigates the impact of UV light exposure and the development of atopic dermatitis in infancy.
In this study, we investigated the clinical manifestations and risk factors for anaphylaxis in PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were obtained from a nationwide cross-sectional study that previously reported on PFAS in Korean patients with pollinosis. Data from 273 patients with PFAS were collected, including demographics, list of culprit fruits and vegetables, and clinical manifestations of food allergy. We analyzed 27 anaphylaxis patients and compared them with patients with PFAS with oropharyngeal symptoms only (n=130). RESULTS: The most common cause of anaphylaxis in PFAS wa...
Although atopic dermatitis (AD) has been associated with increased risk of food allergy (FA), this association is not fully understood, and the predictors of severe reactions to foods are not clear. In a review of 18 population-controlled studies, the rate of food sensitization was up to 6 times higher in patients with AD vs healthy controls.1 A recent study identified a potential physiologic mechanism by demonstrating increased skin barrier dysfunction, measured by increased transepidermal water loss and reduced skin filaggrin levels, in patients with AD and FA.

In a review of 18 population-controlled studies, the rate of food sensitization was up to 6 times higher in patients with AD versus normal controls.1 A recent study identified a potential physiologic mechanism by demonstrating increased skin barrier dysfunction, measured by increased transepidermal water loss and reduced skin filaggrin levels, in patients with AD and FA.
Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic, relapsing disease that typically manifests in childhood and improves with age. Studies have demonstrated that the presence of AD increases the risk of developing food allergy, allergic rhinitis, and asthma later in life. Although children with AD are more likely to produce allergen-specific immunoglobulin E, there is conflicting evidence that allergen avoidance improves disease severity. Furthermore, food-elimination diets in patients with AD may increase the risk of developing immediate, life-threatening reactions to the removed food. The most effective treatments of AD aim to repair a...
Recent publications in The Annals of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology have documented the pain and suffering associated with cutaneous allergy.1,2 In the current issue of The Annals, Jonathan Silverberg reviews a number of comorbid health problems associated with atopic dermatitis (AD). Of greatest interest to allergists, AD predisposes to a higher risk of food allergy, eosinophilic esophagitis, and respiratory allergy.3 The systemic effects of AD are also manifested by a higher risk for infectious and cardiovascular risk.
To evaluate the role of atopy (i.e. atopic dermatitis, allergic rhinitis, asthma, and food allergies) and its consequences on developing meatal stenosis in boys.
Conclusions: Children with IBD should be constantly monitored by medical professionals, not only due to the underlying disease but also due to a possible concomitant allergic disease. PMID: 31333345 [PubMed]
Authors: Kim J, Kim BE, Ahn K, Leung DYM Abstract Staphylococcus aureus commonly colonizes the skin of atopic dermatitis (AD) patients and contributes to the development and exacerbation of AD. Multiple factors are associated with colonization of AD skin by S. aureus, including the strength of S. aureus-corneocyte adhesion, deficiency of antimicrobial peptides, decreased levels of filaggrin and filaggrin degradation products, overexpressed Th2/Th17 cytokines, microbial dysbiosis and altered lipid profiles. S. aureus colonization on AD skin causes skin barrier dysfunction through virulence factors such as superantig...
