  1. Values are odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) from logistic regression models for never/ever eczema and average odds ratios (95% confidence intervals) from logistic regression models after multiple sampling based on 150 imputed datasets for eczema phenotypes. Full models were adjusted for parental history of allergy, asthma or eczema, maternal education, parity, child’s sex, ethnicity and breastfeeding. Italic values indicate statistical significance at the α = 0.05 level
