Is this eczema? Should I worry about it? What creams should I use and are there certain foods that that I should avoid giving my baby?

We will cover some medical background to the development of eczema, and provide overview on the medical and dietary management principles.

Whilst healthcare professionals understand this burden, parents of children with food allergy are often still left feeling anxious, confused and overwhelmed.
