It Takes Two To Tango: Exploring the Relationship Between Food Allergies and Eczema

In this episode we explore the bi-directional relationship between food allergies and eczema with two leading pediatric allergists.  Our guests are Dr. Anne Marie Singh, an allergy and immunology specialist with a focus in pediatrics with the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, and Dr. Peck Ong, Associate Professor of Clinical Pediatrics at the University of Southern California and attending physician in the Division of Clinical Immunology and Allergy at Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. Our conversation explores how and when food allergies can trigger eczema as well as how eczema can serve as the gateway to food allergies; new approaches to treating food allergy; and future directions for preventing both conditions.
