Asthma, food allergy, and atopic dermatitis are common disorders affecting children that often coexist. Children can develop atopic dermatitis in infancy and later develop food allergies as new foods are introduced. In these highly atopic children, respiratory symptoms can also develop. This pattern of allergic disease progression has been termed the “atopic march.” Allergic (TH2-biased) inflammation and allergen sensitization are underlying mechanisms of these disorders, and control of one disease may affect the outcomes of the other disorders. Therefore, an understanding of the relationship between these allergic entities is important.
