My 23 month old little boy had eczema severely as an infant, and although it has mostly cleared up, he has recently been diagnosed with asthma and we also discovered by accident that he is allergic to peanuts. Anyone else experiencing the same thing?

We've already been through the allergy testing. Not only does he have an inhaler, but we also carry an Epipen everywhere we go.

yes, been there done that. She is now 11. He needs to be tested for allergies, seasonal and food asap from an allergist. That way you know what he is allergic to and what to avoid. This common with babies with severe aczema. She started allergy shots when she was 5 and still on them weekly and she doing tons and tons better.

They recently put my son on Flovent 2x a day to prevent asthma episodes because we were using the rescue inhaler about once a month prior to that. He seems to have the most trouble with the asthma when he gets a cold. Since we started the Flovent, he's had a couple colds and got through them without a wheezing episode. That seems promising. We have a specialist visit next month to discuss how he's doing with the new medication. They have confidence he has a good chance of outgrowing it.

Yes my son was 5 weeks old when he was diagnosed with eczema and then at about months was diagnosed with mild asthma that was triggered by allergies, By 18 months they had to allergy test him and found out he is highly allergic to dust mites. We have also found out he is allergic to strawberries. His asthma has never gotten to bad until the week of Christmas we had a real cold spike come through MS which sent him into an asthma attack. After treating him at home for a week with two breathing treatment steroids and a liquid steroid plus singular there was not change in his lung sounds so we ended up spending three days of Christmas week in the hospital. He still has eczema break outs every once in a while, esp during the winter and takes an allergy med and singular every night and that seems to keep his asthma under control. We are hoping he will out grow it. I also hope yours does too.
