Are dietary interventions effective for the treatment of eczema? EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER: Probably not for most patients (SOR: B, systematic review of conflicting small trials). Excluding a food from a patient’s diet for the treatment of eczema may be effective if that patient has a food allergy diagnosed by other means (SOR: C, small RCT). There is no evidence that eliminating food from a pregnant or lactating mother’s diet will reduce the risk of atopic eczema in her child (SOR: B, systematic review of RCTs with limitations).
