Shipping Rates & Policies Atopic dermatitis (AD) is associated with colonization and increased risk of infections with Staphylococcus aureus. However, it's unclear how the skin microbiome during infancy affects the incidence of AD. This prospective study evaluated the effects of skin microbiome on the risk of developing AD during the first year of life. The study included 50 randomly selected infants from an Irish birth cohort study. Skin swabs from four sites relevant to AD were collected at 2 days and 2 and 6 months of age, with bacterial 16S rRNA gene sequencing and analysis performed directly from clinical samples. Patterns and changes in bacterial skin colonization were analyzed for association with the incidence of AD at 1 year. The types and diversity of bacteria in the skin microbiome changed significantly between sampling periods. In contrast to patients with established AD, occurrence of infantile AD was not associated with skin dysbiosis or colonization with S. aureus. Development of AD during the first year of life was associated with significant differences in bacterial communities detected in swabs from the antecubital fossa at 2 months. In particular, commensal staphylococci were significantly less abundant in infants who went on to develop AD. The skin microbiome was unrelated to mode of delivery or feeding method. Skin colonization with S. aureus does not appear to occur before the development of AD in infants. Early colonization with commensal staphylococci may have a protective effect against infantile AD. The authors emphasize the need for further research to understand the pathophysiology and mechanisms by which the skin microbiome affects the development of skin immunity and AD.

Awareness Events To start with we have this shower oil, which is much gentler than the usual supermarket products. And we have this oil and water emulsion which should be applied mornings and evenings. It might also be good to have a small tube of hand-cream in your handbag and to use it after hand-washing. This one contains 10% urea and is not perfumed, which, by the way, is very important when buying skincare products.

Eczema is a skin condition characterised by an itchy, red rash, which affects 5% to 20% of people worldwide. There is no cure, but many treatments can help improve the skin's condition, making life easier. In those for whom these treatments do not work well or who fear their long‐term effects, there is often a belief that either something in their diet, or something missing in their diet, is making their eczema worse.
