Yeah I was told that usually if you have asthma there is a very good chance you have eczema too. As a child my asthma and eczema were extreme but now they have both improve drastically I put that all down to my diet
About a decade ago when I was about 11, we (my mum and me) cleared out all fizzy drinks and drinks with additives etc from my diet, took out wheat completely, introduced more whole grain and plenty of fruit and veg. Its funny seeing the new food guidelines when my mum started implementing then on me all those years ago.
Of course at the time I was(and do still) also suffering from Attention deficit disorder, and so she thought all my problems were environmental, so taking care of my enviroment and nutrition would be the cure, completely ignoring the genetics factor of my dad having asthma (all be it mild), and unbeknown to her until much much later her being attention deficit herself.
