Eczema (Atopic Dermatitis): A new research paper and treatment recommendations

Could Eczema be aggravated by a bacteria?

Research Paper: Is itch intensity in atopic dermatitis associated with skin colonization by staphylococcus aureus?

Results: Lesional and nonlesional skin showed a high frequency of S. aureus colonization when compared with controls.

Conclusions: aureus skin colonization may be one of the factors aggravating itch in AD. It may be hypothesized that restoring the natural composition of the skin microbiome may reduce pruritus (urge to scratch) intensity.

Recommendations: Patients with AD are advised to use special clothing containing silver ions and bathe regularly with fragrance-free detergents.

Recently, bleach baths have been reported to alleviate AD symptoms, reduce S.aureus colonization in children, and be a potential treatment in patients who have undergone more than one therapy with systemic antibiotics during AD flares.

Another alternative is to add small amounts of potassium permanganate to the bathing water.

In the future, preparations including probiotics, synthetic AMPs, and other novel antimicrobial agents may prove successful in controlling S.aureus colonization in AD without causing significant bacterial resistance and side effects.
