​Probiotics and Eczema

Probiotics may decrease itch in aduts with eczema
Antipruritic effects of the probiotic strain LKM512 in adults with atopic dermatitis.
LKM512 administration may exert antipruritic effects by increasing KYNA production. LKM512 could therefore be a potentially effective therapeutic candidate for the reduction of pruritus.

Eczema Skin Care

​​Skin Care for Eczema/Dry skin
Skin care starts with cleansing.
Avoid drying soaps or harsh detergents. The average pH level (acidity or alkaline) of soap is 9 to 10. The skin’s normal pH level is 4 to 5. Because of this difference, soap increases the skin’s pH to an undesirable level and can worsen eczema symptoms.
It is best to use a non-soap cleanser because they are usually free of sodium lauryl sulfate.
When bathing or showering, avoid using anything that will scrape the skin, such as a washcloth, sponge, or loofah.
Do not use bubble bath.
Pat skin dry rather than rub.
Moisturize immediately after bathing/showering to seal in moisture.
