More kids getting skin & food allergies

Skin and food allergies are on the rise in children.

A new study finds one in 20 kids have food allergies.

That's a 50% increase since the late 1990's.

For eczema and other skin allergies, it's one in eight children.

Doctors believe the overuse of antibiotics does not give children the opportunity to be exposed to germs early on which could stop them from developing certain allergies later.
