    Can you identify atopic dermatitis phenotypes in children?



    Children under two years old with signs of atopic dermatitis have an increased risk of developing asthma and food allergies, researchers report in JAMA Pediatrics. And, young children with both early onset atopic dermatitis and a food allergy, have a “very high risk” of developing asthma or allergic rhinitis.

    “This finding is of great importance because atopic dermatitis and food allergy are diseases appearing often in early childhood, with the hypothesis that children with atopic dermatitis are more prone to develop sensitization to food allergens owing to a defect of skin barrier among those children,” wrote Caroline Roduit, M.D., the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and colleagues.
