Doc says dry skin linked to food allergies?

Our pediatrician mentioned that dry, flaky skin can be connected to developing a food allergy. Is anyone else hearing this from your docs?

thanks!

    I haven't. However, my daughter hasn't had very much dry skin. 

    Are you concerned about you doctor's capability or perspectives? If so, I'd start doing some research and switch doctors. 
  • Not concerned. Just curious since there's so much new research and knowledge about food allergy is increasing. Trying to learn as much as I can from my doc, but also other sources since appointments are short and they can't cover everything.  Since I posted, I found this -- https://www.medicaldaily.com/eczema-infants-could-be-tied-development-food-allergies-247855

  • Eczema, which is a condition that consists of dry flaky skin, but is more than just the occasional dry patch, can be a sign that your child has higher risks of food allergies.
