possibly: The distribution pattern for eczema is fairly predictable, while "ring worm" which is a superficial fungus infection can occur anywhere on the body including scalp, beard, trunk, groin, foot.

My first child is 3.5 years old and has eczema/wheezing (food allergies wheat, egg, nuts). Nobody in family history had. Next child can have the same?
Timing and testing: About 33% of people with moderate to severe eczema have an allergic trigger. The allergic trigger could be a food or dust mite. Sometimes the pattern of eating the food followed by flaring of the eczema will help, but the best test is to eliminate the food and monitor to see if the eczema improves. To determine which foods to eliminate, allergy blood or skin tests can be helpful, but not perfect. ...Read more
Food Triggers: Evidence to suggest that moderate/severe eczema in early childhood could be worsened by certain foods (usually highly allergenic foods like peanut, tree nuts, milk, eggs, etc.). Food triggers are not usually an issue with adult eczema. If you notice a consistent pattern of worsening eczema with a particular food then by all means avoid it. Skin prick testing better that patch. See Allergist. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers
Son has food allergies and eczema, but healthy. Twice now, in a couple months, he has had a low temp while sick(96.3) His norm:97.5. Worry?
? thermometer: His regular temperature appears to be below average and I wonder as to how accurate the thermometer is. Try another one to see if you get the same measurement.

However the accuracy of your thermometer should be verified. ...Read more
I've never had food allergies & tested neg for them, but do have eczema & chronic hives. does this mean i'll react to big allergens like nuts & fish?
Not necessarily: In fact, your own experience with eating nuts and fish is a much more reliable indicator of whether you're actually allergic than the results of skin testing will be. I think your allergist will tell you the same thing. The best way to determine whether your skin issues are due to allergy is a few weeks' trial of an elimination diet. Ask about it. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Could food allergy worsen atopic dermatitis? Allergy test said i don't have food allergy but i feel I do after eating certain food like chicken, soda,
Food Allergy: Yes food allergies can cause atopic dermatitis. Testing may not always be accurate.
