Prevention or modification of the onset of atopic dermatitis has been difficult to document through prolonged breast feeding or delayed introduction of solid foods. Dietary management of established atopic dermatitis is not routinely indicated for the majority of patients. Dietary management of atopic dermatitis should not be continued indefinitely. Gradual reintroduction of the offending food(s) is often appropriate. The foods most commonly avoided in the management of atopic dermatitis are cow's milk, wheat, eggs, and nuts. Severe or prolonged dietary restrictions should not be instituted without full consideration of their impact on the patient's general health.
