Eczema + Atopic Dermatitis Food List Patient Handouts [Bundle]

Patient handouts for those living with Eczema + Atopic Dermatitis

This is why we’ve created a bundle pack of handouts for dietitians and health care professionals

– to save you time and help you implement dietary interventions for symptom relief with patients in 10 minutes or less!

***Download nutrition resources to provide focused information, advice, and guidance on nickel and chromate allergies and food chemical sensitivity for salicylate and histamine ***


Nickel is a common allergy affecting approximately 4-13% of the population, and a common cause of contact dermatitis contact cheilitis, and eczema.

Salicylates and histamine are both food chemicals that can create allergic-type reactions in the body frequently referred to as intolerances. These food chemicals and the reduction of intake has also been associated with reducing eczema flare ups in certain individuals.

Salicylate intolerance is known to cause a variety of different symptoms including: asthma symptoms or attacks, itching & hives, angioedema (swelling), nasal congestion and digestive symptoms (pain, diarrhea).

The low histamine diet is a diet used to manage the symptoms of mast cell activation disorder or histamine intolerance. It is also used in food chemical sensitivity.

Chromate is a common allergy affecting approximately 6% of the population, and a potential contributor of eczema. There has been a small body of evidence to suggest that reducing chromate in the diet may help improve eczema flare ups in patients who are sensitive to chromate.


This bundle includes the following patient handouts that explain the condition and provides a list of foods to allowed, and foods to limit when implementing these dietary interventions for symptom relief

  • The Low Salicylate Diet
