Childhood conditions like asthma and allergies may have a common link – it might have to do with a skin condition.
Eczema, food allergies and asthma are all on the rise in children, and experts say that’s no coincidence. New research shows how treating a baby’s skin may save them from a lifetime of allergic diseases.
Ava Segur developed eczema when she was just a few weeks old.
“We were trying to get that under control. Then all of a sudden, she got these food allergies at the same time, around 18 months old.” Turns out, this wasn’t a coincidence. And it all started with the dry, cracked skin caused by eczema.
