Probiotics are not supported for eczema

Some studies have suggested that giving probiotics to young children may reduce their risk of developing eczema , but the evidence is not very strong.

There's no evidence to support claims that probiotics can help treat symptoms of eczema.

A 2008 review found that probiotics do not reduce eczema symptoms , such as itching, nor do they change the severity of a person's eczema.
