According to iVillage Health, the CDC is reporting a rise in food and skin allergies in children. "The number of American children who suffer from food and skin allergies has increased dramatically in recent years, a new government report shows.

Interestingly, the prevalence of food and respiratory allergies rose with income: Children living in families that made more than 200 percent of the poverty level had the highest rates, the statistics showed." more

Does your child have food or skin allergies? What do you think accounts for this rise in children's allergies?
