10-30%: Eczema is very common in babies, kids and adults. About 10-30% of people have eczema. It is often found in people with asthma or allergic rhinitis (allergies).

Yes: Eczema is common after the first few months of life. Moderate to severe eczema in children is triggered by a food allergy in greater than 40% of children, although very uncommon to be triggered by a food allergy in adults.
