Investigation into the increase in hay fever and eczema at age 16 observed between the 1958 and 1970 British birth cohorts
TLDR
Changes between cohorts in sex, birth weight, birth order, maternal age, breast feeding, maternal smoking during pregnancy, and father's social class at birth did not seem to explain any of the observed rise in the prevalence of hay fever and eczema among British 16 year olds.
The epidemiology of childhood eczema: II. Statistical analyses to identify independent early predictors.
Amongst a nationally representative sample of singletons born in one week of April 1970 for whom information was available, 12.3% were reported by their mothers as having developed eczema at some
The epidemiology of childhood eczema: I. A population based study of associations.
TLDR
Information on whether they thought their child had ever had eczema was obtained from the mothers of 12,555 children in a national cohort of five-year-olds born in 1970, and a profile of characteristics of the children with reported ecZema was produced.
Childhood eczema: disease of the advantaged?
TLDR
Ezema is more prevalent among British schoolchildren in social classes I and II than those in lower classes, and exposures associated with social class are probably at least as important as genetic factors in the expression of childhood eczema.
Stable incidence of atopic dermatitis among children in Denmark during the 1990s.
TLDR
Comparing the cumulative incidence of atopic dermatitis in 1993 and 1998 and the severity and management of AD among children found no difference in the age-adjusted AD incidence in the 5-year observation period.
Support for 2 variants of eczema.
Original articles Support for 2 variants of eczema
TLDR
It is likely that environmental factors have a different effect on these 2 variants of eczema, and future studies should consider Eczema as 2 variants in determining the effect of attributable risks.
[Prevalence of atopic eczema and associated symptoms in school children].
TLDR
A reduction in the prevalence of "medical diagnoses" of atopic eczema in 6 to 7-year-old children is documented, indicating that atopic Eczema remains as a relevant disease in the pediatric population.
early childhood . British children : effect of migration during Regional variations in wheezing illness in
TLDR
Genetic constitution, perinatal exposures, or early childhood experiences are unlikely to account for the regional variation in wheezing illness, and environmental factors operating at a regional level probably determine the prevalence of asthma in primary school children.

THE INCIDENCE OF ECZEMA IN EARLY CHILDHOOD.
TLDR
An attempt has been made to discover the number of cases which had occurred in a group of otherwise normal children who were living on a housing estate built after 1946 on the outskirts of Bristol, and it was impossible to separate out any particular pattern of eczema.
ATOPIC DISEASE IN SEVEN‐YEAR‐OLD CHILDREN Incidence in Relation to Family History
TLDR
The findings support theories of a polygenic transmission of atopic disease as well as a genetic influence on symptom specificity in such disease and may be of value in genetic counselling.
Breast feeding, eczema, asthma, and hayfever.
TLDR
Breast feeding does not appear to protect against atopic diseases and "Any wheezing" including asthma was reported more often in children who had not been breast fed, but this association disappeared after adjustment for parental asthma and maternal smoking.
Prevalence and familial association of atopic disease and its relationship to serum IgE levels in 1,061 school children and their families.
The prevalence of asthma, hay fever, wheezing bronchitis, and eczema was found to be independent of age and sex in 1,598 school children aged 6–17 years who were resident in Busselton, Western
Eczema and infant diet
TLDR
Children of atopic parents givenSolid food during the first 4 months had over two‐and‐a‐half times the rate of eczema of children not given solid food and who had non‐atopic parents.
Teenage mothering, admission to hospital, and accidents during the first 5 years.
TLDR
The association of teenage mothering with greater likelihood that children would have accidents or be admitted to hospital remained highly significant even after controlling for social and biological confounding influences.
WHO COLLABORATIVE BREAST FEEDING STUDY
TLDR
Although the calculated intake of the DDT complex (DDT+DDE+DDD) by some of the suckling infants exceeds the acceptable daily intake proposed by a FAO/WHO expert group, it does not constitute a reason for recommending any restrictions on breast feeding and should be encouraged.
How Prevalent Is Allergy Among United States School Children ?
TLDR
A questionnaire study was carried out with children in the Munster area because of reports that the incidence of allergy in the general population of the United States is higher than this.
