Probiotics Benefit Young Children with Eczema
Gerasimov et al. in Ukraine studied the effects of probiotics on moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, more commonly known as eczema, in children aged one to three years.
Gerasimov et al. concluded that a supplement containing a mixture of L. acidophilus DDS-1, B. lactis UABLA-12, and fructo-oligosaccharide in a dosage of 5 billion colony-forming units would provide significant clinical improvment in children with eczema. However, further studies need to be completed on the effects of probiotics in adults with eczema.
