In a new study, scientists from Kings College London, have found that young children with severe eczema infected with Staphylococcus aureus (SA) bacterium, are at a higher risk of developing a food allergy.

The findings from the Learning Early About Peanut Allergy (LEAP) study cohort show that even after controlling for eczema severity, skin S. aureus positivity was associated with an increased risk for developing allergies to peanuts, eggs, and cow’s milk. The findings are published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology.
