Atopic eczema (atopic dermatitis [AD]) is a disease with severe quality-of-life impairment that affects 40% of children  and 5% of the adult population.1 The underlying pathomechanisms of AD are predominantly a skin barrier defect together with microbiome dysbiosis and significant immune dysregulation.1,2

ConclusionsSimilar to peanut allergy, eczema was strongly associated with egg allergy development and the association increased with increasing eczema severity. The age of introduction of dietary egg was not a risk factor. The potential role of antibiotics in early life as a risk factor for egg allergy needs further examination.

AbstractAtopic dermatitis (AD) is the most common chronic inflammatory skin disease in the world. AD is a complex pathology mainly characterized by an impaired skin barrier, immune response dysfunction, and unbalanced skin microbiota. Moreover, AD patients exhibit an increased risk of developing bacterial and viral infections. One of the most current, and potentially life-threatening, viral infection is caused by herpes simplex virus (HSV), which occurs in about 3% of AD patients under the name of eczema herpeticum (EH). Following a first part dedicated to the clinical features, virological diagnosis, and current treatment...

Abstract BACKGROUND: The optimal approaches for monitoring sleep disturbances in adults with atopic dermatitis (AD) is not established. Multiple patient-reported outcome measures for AD and itch have sleep-related items. These items have not been validated previously. OBJECTIVE: Assess the measurement properties of sleep-related items from the Patient- Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM), SCORing AD (SCORAD), 5-dimensions of itch (5D) and ItchyQOL in adults with AD. METHODS: We performed a prospective dermatology practice-based study using questionnaires and evaluation by a dermatologist (n=115). RESULTS...

This study aims to systematically review the evidence describing the effects of timing of CM or cow’s milk formula (CMF) introduction to the infant diet on the development of atopic diseases during childhood. Pubmed, Embase, CINAHL, Cochrane CENTRAL, and CNKI were sea rched through May 30, 2019. Study screening and data extraction by two reviewers followed the PRISMA statement. Data were extracted independently in duplicate, and meta-analyses were performed by pooling unadjusted and adjusted odds ratio (OR) separately. Heterogeneity was explored usingI2 and publication bias by funnel plots and Begg ’s tests. In...

Allergic diseases such as atopic dermatitis (AD), food allergy (FA), asthma and allergic rhinitis (AR) are common; according to a national birth cohort study in Japan, almost half of pregnant women reported a history of allergic disease.1 Given that genetic factors, including family history, are predictors of allergic diseases in offspring, we expect the birth of many infants who carry a high risk of developing allergies. Among allergy prevention strategies, the effectiveness of primary prevention of eczema in high-risk infants by the topical application of emollient during the neonatal period has been demonstrated in two ...

Introduction: Although asthma/allergic diseases are known to follow circadian rhythmicity, whether these are associated with individual circadian preference/chronotype (CT) is not known.Objective: To estimate the association between allergic responses and chronotype among adolescents.Methods: Among 1684 adolescents (58% male) aged between 13 and 14 years, recruited from 23 randomly selected schools of 16 districts of West Bengal (India), prevalence of asthma, wheeze, rhinitis, rhinoconjunctivitis, and eczema were assessed using the English-back Bengali version of the International Study on Asthma and Allergies in Childhood...

JärvinenAbstractBreastfeeding is currently recommended as the optimal source of nutrition to infants. However, there are several studies that have shown clinical IgE and non-IgE-mediated reactions to foods in exclusively breastfeeding infants, specifically to cow’s milk, egg, peanut, and fish. Literature suggests that antigenic food proteins present in human milk can be found in substantial enough amounts to elicit clinical reac...
