Test participants notices a reduction in the severity of their eczema and in some cases, were able to reduce usage of other medicines. Best of all, no complications were reported. 60% of adults and 80% of children in the test reported a good level of improvement in their eczema symptoms by the end of the trial.
“This study has exciting potential for one day having a treatment for the millions of sufferers of eczema,” said Dr. Michele Green, and “What is most exciting is that the ‘cure’ may be through the skin microbiome itself.”
