A strong link: A mom told me in israel her son's eczema was referred to as skin asthma; a great way to emphasize that infantile eczema often precedes onset of asthma by 2-3 years.

Dust mites may be the primary culprit in the end. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Because asthma is multifactorial, both genes & environment play a big role. ...Read more

Some basics: Steroid creams when properly used are a mainstay of eczema care. The creams/lotion come in various strengths.
