Dairy Products

1. Dairy

Foods that contain dairy such as milk, cheese, yogurt and butter have been a cause for allergy symptoms for millions, and for many, those symptoms include the ones present in eczema. In fact, dairy is the most common food allergy in infants and young children, affecting approximately 2.5 percent of children under three years of age.

While the exact reason for dairy allergies are not completely know, if you suspect milk products may be the culprit for your or your child’s eczema, you may want to omit it from your diet to see if anything changes.
