Breast-feeding and atopic eczema dermatitis syndrome: protective or harmful?

Published in Allergy. 2004, vol. 59 Suppl 78, p. 42-4
Abstract Numerous studies have addressed the potential of breast-feeding to protect for the development of allergic diseases, and in particular of atopic eczema dermatitis syndrome (AEDS). Although the majority of studies, as well as several meta-analyses, are strongly in favour of breast-feeding, there are some conflicting results and open issues. Furthermore, breast-feeding might be detrimental in a subgroup of young infants with severe early manifestations of AEDS and immunoglobulin E sensitizations to common foods. The aim of this review is not to analyse systematically the current literature, but to suggest a scientifically and clinically based analysis of the benefits of breast-feeding in atopic infants.
