WEDNESDAY, April 20 (HealthDay News) — New research finds that adults who suffered from eczema as children — especially if they also had hay fever — are nine times more likely to have allergic asthma when they’re in their 40s.

The findings are based on about 1,400 adults who have been followed for five decades as part of Australia’s Tasmanian Longitudinal Health Study. The study participants were assessed in 1968, when they were 7 years old, and then again in 2004 when they were about 44 years of age.
