The allergic march is the progression of allergic diseases.

It starts with eczema, progresses to food allergy, then hay fever and asthma.

Eczema is associated with a defective skin barrier.

The food allergens penetrate through the skin.

That leads to abnormalities in the allergic response.

We can prevent the allergic march by reducing allergen penetration through the skin.

This can be done through skin moisturizers.

If moisturizers fail, we use anti-inflammatory therapy.
