    Recently there have been quite a few trials on the effectiveness of taking probiotics during the last 2 months of pregnancy in order to prevent eczema developing when the baby is born.

    These trials have shown an effective reduction in the incidence of babies developing eczema, especially in families where one or both parents already suffer from eczema or related diseases (hayfever or asthma).

    There are now available on the market specific probiotics to take.
