As someone who has always had eczema, having the opportunity to write this blog with Sian Shepherd, Registered Dietitian, for Symprove For Professionals was very exciting. This blog looks into:
What eczema is
The gut microbiome
Probiotics in the prevention of eczema
Probiotics in the treatment of eczema - infants & children, adults.
