Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a chronic inflammatory skin disease affecting children and adolescents worldwide. The relationship of AD to diet has been a matter of curiosity for many years. Here we look at the evidence in the literature of the association between AD and diet, and the effectiveness of elimination diets and diet supplementation in the management of AD. Several studies have found an association between clinical food allergy and AD, and more recent investigations have also suggested…

Consensus Guidelines for the Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis in Korea (Part II): Systemic Treatment

Background Since the treatment guidelines for atopic dermatitis (AD) were issued by the Korean Atopic Dermatitis Association (KADA) work group in 2006, there have been further advances in the

The Role of Nutrition in Immune-Mediated, Inflammatory Skin Disease: A Narrative Review

Whether specific dietary modifications could provide meaningful implementation in planning a therapeutic strategy for patients is evaluated, in accordance with regenerative medicine precepts, a healing-oriented medicine that considers the whole person, including all aspects of the lifestyle.

A Third Year of Breastfeeding and Atopic Dermatitis Development: Data from a General Population Cohort of Full-Term Newborns

There is some evidence that prolonged breastfeeding, up to 25-36 months of life, is associated with a higher risk of AD in healthy full-term newborns regardless of maternal sensitisation and/or maternal allergy history.

Atopic Dermatitis (Eczema)

Alternative and complementary treatments offer different approaches to atopic dermatitis, and many have reasonably solid evidence and reassuring safety data.

Instant noodles, processed food intake, and dietary pattern are associated with atopic dermatitis in an adult population (KNHANES 2009-2011).

Consuming instant noodles, meat and processed foods was associated with increased prevalence of atopic dermatitis, whereas consuming rice and kimchi, and coffee was associatedWith decreased prevalence ofAtopic dermatococcal disease.

Dietary coconut oil ameliorates skin contact hypersensitivity through mead acid production in mice

The impact of dietary coconut oil in allergic skin inflammation is shown by using a mouse model of contact hypersensitivity (CHS) and detailed mechanistic studies unveiled that mead acid inhibited the directional migration of neutrophils by inhibiting the filamentous actin polymerization and leukotriene B4 production required for secondary recruitment of neutophils.

Monitoring the impact of cow's milk allergy on children and their families with the FLIP questionnaire – a six‐month follow‐up study

The Food hypersensitivity famiLy ImPact questionnaire (FLIP) was used to monitor changes in the impact of CMA over time and found that tolerance develops, but, challenges in daily life may remain.

Assessment of vegetative, neurohumoral and psycho-emotional disorders in patients with atopic dermatitis of varying severity

Goal of the study. evaluation of psycho-vegetative disorders in patients with atopic dermatitis, and the determination of their influence on the severity of the disease. Material and methods. The



Sensitization in early age to food allergens in children with atopic dermatitis.

A high prevalence of food sensitization was found in infants with AD, and the most frequent sensitization observed was to egg, although with little clinical relevance since this food had not been introduced into the diet.

To date the role of pseudoallergic reactions as an aggravating factor in AD of adult patients remains controversial, however, many adult patients report on food‐related aggravation of the disease and nonallergic hypersensitivity reactions have been incriminated repeatedly.

Atopic dermatitis and asthma: parallels in the evolution of treatment.

A clear rationale exists to support atopic dermatitis guideline development and the many parallels between AD and asthma suggest that processes and approaches used for the asthma therapy guidelines would be appropriate for AD.

Prevalence of IgE-Mediated Food Allergy Among Children With Atopic Dermatitis

Approximately one third of children with refractory, moderate–severe AD have IgE-mediated clinical reactivity to food proteins, and an evaluation for food allergy should be considered in these patients.

Role of foods in irregular aggravation of skin lesions in children with atopic dermatitis

It is suggested that foods play an important role in irregular aggravation of skin lesions in children with atopic dermatitis.

Dietary supplements for established atopic eczema.

There is no convincing evidence of the benefit of dietary supplements in eczema, and they cannot be recommended for the public or for clinical practice at present.

Food Allergy and Atopic Dermatitis in Infancy: An Epidemiologic Study

A birth cohort of 620 infants from the Melbourne Atopy Cohort Study, a cohort with a family history of eczema, asthma, hay fever, or immediate food allergy in a parent or sibling, is examined to examine the relationship between atopic dermatitis and IgE-mediated food allergies in infancy.

Late Eczematous Reactions to Food in Children With Atopic Dermatitis

To evaluate the frequency of late-phase atopic dermatitis reactions to foods during double-blind placebo-controlled food challenges (DBPCFCs) and correlate the results with food-specific IgE and patch tests, sixty-four children with mild to severe AD are evaluated in an outpatient dermatology and allergy department in Germany.

Atopic dermatitis in premature and term children

The prevalence of atopic dermatitis in the first 2 years of life was 18.6%, with no significant difference between preterm and term children.

Food allergies and atopic dermatitis: differentiating myth from reality.

It is found that multiple domains are affected in families with food allergy including school, camp, social activities involving food, vacations, children in the care of others, restaurant meals, and being near other children who are eating.
