Slash Incidence of Infant Eczema and Allergy by 58%
"Daily supplements of probiotic foods may reduce the risk of eczema in children by 58 percent, according to a new study.
Eczema, also known as atopic dermatitis, is one of the first signs of allergy during the early days of life and is said to be due to delayed development of the immune system. It affects between 10 percent to 20 percent of all infants."
