In brief: Food or dust mites

1/3 of children with eczema have food allergies.
The culprits are usually egg, milk, peanut, wheat, tree nuts, corn, soy. 1/3 are allergic to house dust mite. 1/3 have no discernible allergies. The presence of asthma & allergic rhinitis makes allergy more likely.

Children that are atopic otherwise known as having allergies manifest their symptoms in many different ways.
Asthma and eczema are two of the more common ones. Identifying your allergies so yo can initiate environmental controls will be helpful. You may also need medications.
