Probiotics reduce and prevent eczema in children under two, say New Zealand researchers. "Our study has found when you give pregnant women the probiotic supplement, L rhamnosus, during the last five weeks of pregnancy, and for six months after birth while mothers are breast feeding, and then you give their infants the same probiotic up to two years of age, there is a 50% reduction in eczema by the age of two," study researcher Julian rane said.
