I think this is something parents should be made aware of early on.
Jordan was diagnosed with eczema when he was just a baby. After the asthma attack when he was three and a half years old, his primary doctor told me that eczema and asthma go hand in hand. Well, no one ever mentioned this to me before. Plus, it was said to me like I should have already known this. When I took Jordan into the hospital for his asthma, I think it was there that I was told, eczema, asthma, and allergies go hand in hand. I was floored. He had been suffering with his eczema since he was a baby, now asthma, and now I learn my son has tons of allergies to everything you can think of. I think this is something parents should be made aware of early on. Not that I could have prevented anything ahead of time, but you never know!
