Eczema frequently appears in kids before age 5, but the noncontagious, inflammatory skin condition also affects adults, causing painful, itchy, scaly rashes that disrupt sleep. The causes of eczema aren’t known, but research has suggested that bacteria and other microorganisms living on the skin are involved in the development of the condition. What’s more, previous studies have shown that the balance of bacteria differs in individuals with eczema compared with those who don’t have the disease. Researchers found that after treatment, eczema symptoms for 17 of the 20 youngsters improved by more than 50%.
