Acetaminophen (APAP) has been associated with the development of atopic diseases. However, little is known about the relationship between prenatal APAP exposure and atopic dermatitis (AD) in offspring. A Study was conducted to investigate the association between prenatal APAP exposure and AD risk in offspring.

In this study, 2029 study pairs (AD-affected children and their mothers) and 5,058 control pairs were identified. Maternal APAP exposure during pregnancy were assessed.

Results:
--After adjustment for potential confounders, there was a significant association between risk of offspring AD and exposure to acetaminophen in:
-the first trimester (OR 1.16),
-the second trimester (OR 1.14),
-both first and second trimesters (OR 1.30),
-both first and third trimester (OR 1.20),
-any trimester (OR 1.12),
-and all three trimesters (OR 1.32) in a dose-response manner.

Conclusively, Prenatal exposure to acetaminophen was associated with an increased incidence of offspring AD.
