Discussion There are 8 common foods which compromise 90% of food allergens with those being peanuts, soybeans, cow’s milk, eggs, fish, crustacean/shellfish, wheat and tree nuts. Some people believe that lupin (a legume) is 9th. Legumes belong to the Fabaceae family. They provide protein, fat, vitamins other essential nutrients and therefore are used in the human diet throughout the world. “[A]llergenicity due to consumption of legumes in decreasing order may be peanut, soybean, lentil, chickpea, pea, mung bean and red gram.” Other common legumes include alfalfa, clovers, beans, lupins, mesquite, carob...

Authors: Abstract Previous studies have found a possible link between the risk of children developing atopic eczema, and hardness of the water used at home. The harder the water (containing more calcium), the more children seemed to develop eczema. Yet a study in children with eczema using water softeners to reduce water hardness had shown no difference in eczema severity. In this UK study, data was used from 1303 children who had participated in the Enquiring About Tolerance (EAT) study. The aim of that study was to investigate if food allergies can be prevented. The available data of these children was quite co...

Abstract There is now level one evidence based on randomized controlled trials that early ingestion of allergenic solids in infancy has a preventive effect against food allergy development. As a result, guidelines now recommend early ingestion of allergenic solids as a means of food allergy prevention. However, guidelines in Canada currently focus this intervention specifically on infants at risk, defined currently as an infant who has a history of atopy such as eczema or food allergy, or who has an immediate family history of atopy. However, this definition fails to account for studies supporting early ingestion ...

Abstract Pediatric allergic disease is a significant health concern worldwide, and the prevalence of childhood eczema, asthma, allergic rhinitis, and food allergy continues to increase. Evidence to support specific interventions for the prevention of eczema, asthma, and allergic rhinitis is limited, and no consensus on prevention strategies has been reached. Randomized controlled trials investigating the prevention of food allergy via oral tolerance induction and the early introduction of allergenic foods have been successful in reducing peanut and egg allergy prevalence. Infant weaning guidelines in the United Sa...

CONCLUSION: All patients were misdiagnosed as AD exacerbation. Therefore, EH should be considered in the differential diagnosis of AD exacerbation especially in the infants with moderate to severe AD. PMID: 32558432 [PubMed - in process]

AbstractWhile activation of immune system may lead to a lower risk of some diseases, it has been shown that a history of atopic allergic disorders such as asthma, hay fever, eczema, and food allergies could be related to several types of cancer. However, the evidence is not entirely conclusive. Two proposals suggest a possible mechanism for the association between allergic disorders and cancers: immune surveillance and the antigenic stimulation. The association of allergy and cancer may vary by cancer site and the type of exposure. The aim of current review was to summarize the current knowledge of the association between ...

Abstract The Patient-Oriented Eczema Measure (POEM, 0-28 points) is a self-assessed, repeatable measurement tool for measuring atopic dermatitis (AD) severity. How-ever, whether POEM score is influenced by allergic comorbidities and whether POEM's severity banding is applicable in web-based surveys for AD remain unclear. A web-based questionnaire survey was conducted in 329 patients with AD. POEM, self-reported severity of AD, and comorbidity of allergic diseases including asthma, pollen rhinitis, allergic conjunctivitis, and food allergy were assessed. POEM scores were not affected by a history of comorbid allerg...

Date: June 15, 2020 Issue #:  1600Summary:  Atopic dermatitis (AD; also known as eczema) is frequently associated with other atopic disorders such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, and food allergy. It commonly presents in infancy and early childhood and has a relapsing course, often improving by adolescence, but sometimes persisting into (or first appearing in) adulthood or even old age.
