All babies have some risk of developing a food allergy. And there is no way to tell for sure whether or not your baby will develop a food allergy. About 1 in 13 children in the United States will develop a food allergy. 

If your baby has severe eczema this increases the chance of developing a food allergy. So, it is even more important to take early steps to prevent peanut allergy and other food allergies. If your baby has severe eczema speak with your baby’s doctor before giving your baby top allergen foods, which in the United States are peanut, egg, milk, tree nuts, soy, sesame, fish, shellfish, and wheat.
