HLA-DRB1*11 demonstrated significant association with aeroallergens and could have a protective role for allergy while HLA-DRB1*12 did not show any association with aeroallergen sensitization.
This article explores the comorbidity between AD, food allergy, aeroallergen sensitisation, asthma and allergic rhinitis in South African (SA) children.
Opinions on the actual role of aeroallergens in the pathophysiology of AD are still divided, although research shows that at least one aeroallergen is present in 40%-50% of children with AD positivity and these children more often have associated asthma and AR (26,27).
In the screening performed in our hospital, aeroallergen sensitivity was found in 25.

An association with exposure to known allergens was also recorded in addition to identifiable aeroallergen triggers, presence of concurrent allergic conditions, family history of AR, and respiratory irritants like smoking shisha, are inducers of exacerbation.
9 The quantity of latex aeroallergens measured in the operating room after using latex versus non-latex gloves follows the order: powdered latex gloves Greater than powder-free latex gloves Greater than non-latex gloves, where the substitution of powder-free for powdered latex gloves reduced the aeroallergen concentration of latex by 10-20-fold.
The SPT was selected according to the patients' history of food and/or aeroallergen sensitivity.
