The rising burden of allergic diseases in childhood requires a compelling need to identify individuals at risk for atopy very early in life or even predict the onset of food allergy and atopic dermatitis since pregnancy. The development and clinical phenotypes of atopic diseases in childhood depend on a complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors, such as allergen exposure, air pollution, and infections. Preventive strategies may include avoidance measures, diet supplements, and early complementary food introduction. Overall, the management of allergic diseases has been improving to date toward a patient's tailored approach. This review will cover the current understanding of risk factors, prediction, and management of food allergy and atopic dermatitis in childhood and discuss how these may contribute to the modification of the natural history of food allergy and atopic dermatitis.

Abstract

The rising burden of allergic diseases in childhood requires a compelling need to identify individuals at risk for atopy very early in life or even predict the onset of food allergy and atopic dermatitis since pregnancy. The development and clinical phenotypes of atopic diseases in childhood depend on a complex interaction between genetic and environmental factors, such as allergen exposure, air pollution, and infections. Preventive strategies may include avoidance measures, diet supplements, and early complementary food introduction. Overall, the management of allergic diseases has been improving to date toward a patient's tailored approach. This review will cover the current understanding of risk factors, prediction, and management of food allergy and atopic dermatitis in childhood and discuss how these may contribute to the modification of the natural history of food allergy and atopic dermatitis.
