What is eczema?

Eczema is a common chronic inflammatory disorder of the skin that causes dry, itchy, and inflamed skin and affects up to 30% of children.1

Recent research has shown a link between eczema and gut health.2a 

 

Here are three tips to soothe your child’s eczema-prone skin and improve their gut health:

  1. Incorporate probiotics into your child’s diet: Studies have shown that probiotics can help improve the balance of bacteria in the gut, which can, in turn, reduce eczema symptoms. 2b Reuterina® drops is clinically validated in babies and children and shown to improve a variety of health conditions.

  1. Avoid high-sugar foods: High-sugar foods can upset the balance of bacteria in the gut, exacerbating eczema symptoms.Instead, focus on whole, nutrient-dense foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins.
  2. Keep your child’s skin hydrated: Dry skin can worsen eczema symptoms, so it’s essential to keep your child’s skin moisturised.5

The Reuterina® family of probiotics are available from selected Dis-Chem and Clicks stores and independent pharmacies nationwide. For more information, visit: https://reuterina.co.za/ and join the conversations on Instagram and Facebook.
