Understanding Allergies, Asthma, and Eczema

Eczema, allergic asthma, and allergic rhinitis are three hyper-allergic conditions—often called the atopic triad—that tend to affect certain people, including kids.

The link between these conditions is complicated, even for doctors and scientists. But having one may increase the chances of your child having another hyper-allergic condition.

How can you tell if your child’s rash might clear up on its own or is indicative of an allergy? Hosts Alok Patel and Bethany Van Delft are here with suggestions on who to talk to when your little one is dealing with one or more of the “triad” conditions.
