thanks naturedoc, do you know which probiotic is best for excema, as notice there are two different infant ones?

The Biocare Infanitis is for up to 6 months but Solgar or Biocare are both as good as each other for 6 months plus. Good luck.

Does anyone know where you can buy these probiotics. I recently asked a dermatologist if she could prescribe some - and was refused because she didn't believe they worked (to be honest I don't think she knew the first thing about them)!

I don't think that you can them on prescription but you can get them in health food shops. They are not cheap though!

i asked my gp about them, and he looked at me with a blank expression; he admitted to knowing nothing about them (??!)
