Comments by Stan Fineman, MD: This birth cohort study analyzed data from skin samples at age 2 days, 2 months, and 6 months, with gene sequencing to determine microbiome changes. Children were then followed up for the clinical development of AD. Interestingly the presence of S. aureus did not precede the development of AD—in fact, several commensal Staph species present at 2 months were associated with a reduced incidence of AD. This suggests that the relationship between the microbiome and skin inflammation is complicated, and that some commensal bacteria may even have a protective effect against eczema in infants.
Background: Neurodermatitis is a common chronic skin disease. Although not life-threatening, it can produce an important psychosocial burden, sleep disturbance and sexual dysfunction. Patients with neurodermatitis tend to have poor social skills or interpersonal resources and a lack of flexibility. However quality of life (QoL) of patients with neurodermatitis has seldom investigated. The objective of this study is to assess the impact of neurodermatitis on patients' QoL using the Dermatology Life Quality Index questionnaire, and assess its feasibility and internal consistency.
