Nasal discharge or "runny nose" is a common occurrence among children. It is the result of the excess production of mucus. Although the condition may signal the presence of a cold, a sinus infection or an allergic reaction, it usually does not represent a significant health threat.
A scaly, red, itchy, dry rash can show up in the first weeks of life. It signals a vexing but treatable skin problem called atopic dermatitis (AD), often known as eczema.
In North America, approximately 5% of children and 1-2% of adults have allergies to food.
