As her mother i was diagnised asthmatic when i was young but have never had an attack in my life,only allergies,respiratory and skin till today.Tried ommitting some food but situation still the same.PLEASE HELP.THANKS

It seems as if your 5 year old daughter has inherited your allergies. She certainly has eczema and probably a nasal allergy problem[hay fever] and her symptoms also suggest that she has asthma. She must be seen by a paediatrician and be tested for allergies and then started on the correct treatment.
