Abstract (summary)

The association between atopic eczema and food allergy is complex, though it is usually children with severe atopic eczema who have food allergy. Probably less than 10% of all children with atopic eczema have IgE mediated food allergy with angioedema and urticaria, when the diagnosis is obvious from the immediacy of the symptoms and can be confirmed by a wheal > 5 mm in diameter after a skin prick test Some of these children have multiple food allergies.
