Abstract

Ecocultural theory considering family as an entity may serve as a new point of view instead of “impact of disease”—perspective. Aims were to reveal ecocultural themes and activities of daily routines in the treatment of a child's food allergy and eczema. Interviews (N=24) were held with mothers with allergic children aged 12months and mothers repeat interviews at 24months. The theme; “living an ordinary family life”, was implemented across the family activities of routines essential for treating the child's allergy. New or altered treatment regimens can be tailored to families on the basis of existing activities.
