Probiotics Help Prevent Eczema

posted by on June 10th, 2013

Ectopic dermatitis, is a dry skin condition. You might know it as exzema.

Did you know children, and sometimes if left unexplored, adults with allergies, or patients with a family history of allergies or asthma are at increased risk of developing eczema?

Clinical & Experimental Allergy, a clinical journal, this month proclaims “children who take probiotics during the first two years of life, have a decreased incidence of eczema”.

In addition to healthy mom diet and breastfeeding, the probiotic(Lactobacillus rhamnosus) might be an appropriate preventative intervention for high risk infants.
