Probiotics may ease eczema for children

Children's Nutrition
28 January 2013

According to results published in Pediatric Allergy and Immunology, the levels of white blood cells (eosinophils) that control the allergic reaction were significantly lowered in children who were supplemented with probiotics compared with those who did not take any.

The probiotics were associated with less symptoms of eczema, however, the effects were only noticed during the time of supplementation as the probiotics did not persist in the gut.

Probiotics have been studied for over 20 years for their beneficial effects on eczema, and many studies identified significant benefits which are specific to the strain of probiotics used in the research.
