Eczema and your baby


Eczemas (atopic dermatitis) is a recurring, non-infectious, inflammatory skin condition affecting one in three Australasians at some stage throughout their lives. The condition is most common in people with family history if atopic disorder, including asthma or hay fever.

Eczema in early childhood

Although eczema affects all ages, it usually appears in early childhood (in babies between two-to-six months of age) and disappears around six years of age. In fact, more than half of all eczema sufferers show signs within their first 12 months of life and 20% of people develop eczema before the age of five.

How can probiotics help reduce the impact eczema?

Probiotic supplements have many benefits but it is important to choose the right probiotic for you and the health concern you are dealing with.  The Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™ strain is a well-documented probiotic strain that provides immune-modulating properties and is proven safe for infants. Recent studies indicate proven efficacy in the reduction of eczema severity and prevalence in infants from 0 to 2 years. Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™ has also been shown to lessen the incidence of eczema with an extended effect to at least 4 years of age

Research shows that Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™ can help to reduce the symptoms of eczema such as itching which may also help reduce the sleeplessness associated with eczema.  Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™ is also safe to take while pregnant and breastfeeding and studies have shown Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™ can help to reduce the frequency and severity of eczema in their children.

Faulding Probiotics for Women and Faulding Probiotics Baby Support both contain the Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™ strain, making them a perfect choice for mother and baby

Other ways to manage eczema in our day to day lives?

There are many factors that may be involved in eczema onset and severity. Making minor dietary and lifestyle changes can assist in the management of eczema symptoms. Some positive changes you can make include:

  • Avoid environmental aggravators such as heat, prickly & rough materials, dryness of skin
  • Daily cool baths
  • Consider vitamin D oral daily supplementation for moderate to severe eczema or if baby is breast feed
  • Apply a moisturising cream top to toe 2-3 times a day even when the eczema is clear.
  • Identify and avoid any foods that you might be sensitive to, as they may trigger or exacerbate eczema symptoms.

 

What's next?

By selecting a probiotic that contains Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001™ such as Faulding Probiotics for Women or Faulding Probiotics Baby Support and by making the appropriate dietary and lifestyle modifications, you may find relief from the symptoms of eczema.

Always read the label. Use only as directed. If symptoms persist consult your healthcare professional.
