What to Eat When You Have Eczema: Top Recipes


Wondering what to eat if you have the inflammatory skin condition atopic dermatitis, commonly known as eczema? I’m here to help with recipes that fit into a healthy, well-balanced diet — the kind of diet that will improve your management of atopic dermatitis symptoms, according to the National Eczema Association.

As recommended by the experts at the Cleveland Clinic, the recipes lean hard on anti-inflammatory ingredients (fruits, vegetables, whole grains, legumes, healthy fats, spices such as turmeric, ginger, and cinnamon) and include few or no pro-inflammatory ingredients (refined grains, processed foods, red meat, added sugar).

If you have a food allergy or food sensitivity, read the ingredient lists here carefully before you dive into a cooking project, and bring any concerns or questions to your doctor. Food allergies are more common in people with atopic dermatitis than in the general population, affecting an estimated 30 percent of people with AD (per the National Eczema Association), and they can be serious.
