CONCLUSIONS: For the following research, the authors suggest SCORAD (Total) as primary outcome and SCORAD (objective), VAS (Itch), VAS (insomnia), EASI, POEM, and DLQI as secondary outcomes. Thirty six participants should be conducted a 4-week acupuncture period (twice weekly) and a 4-week follow-up. It is necessary to compare the differences of general symptoms according to presence of epigastric tenderness or dyspepsia at the screening level. PMID: 30477869 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: Evidence suggests that, compared with no probiotic, currently available probiotic strains probably make little or no difference in improving patient-rated eczema symptoms. Probiotics may make little or no difference in QoL for people with eczema nor in investigator-rated eczema severity score (combined with participant scoring for eczema symptoms of itch and sleep loss); for the latter, the observed effect was small and of uncertain clinical significance. Therefore, use of probiotics for the treatment of eczema is currently not evidence-based. This update found no evidence of increased adverse effects with pro...

fer J Abstract Itch is an unpleasant symptom, affecting many dermatological patients. Studies investigating the occurrence and intensity of itch in dermatological patients often focus on a single skin disease and omit a control group with healthy skin. The aim of this multi-centre study was to assess the occurrence, chronicity and intensity (visual analogue scale 0-10) of itch in patients with different skin diseases and healthy-skin controls. Out of 3,530 dermatological patients, 54.3% reported itch (mean ± standard deviation itch intensity 5.5 ± 2.5), while out of 1,094 ...

CONCLUSIONS: Colloidal oatmeal has been shown to safely reduce itching and irritation associated with AD and the severity of dry skin. These benefits, mediated by colloidal oatmeal's natural components, help to restore and maintain skin barrier function. This compound is safe, well tolerated, and can be effective as adjuvant treatment in AD . Moisturizers can reduce the dependency on topical corticosteroids and their potential adverse effects.

Atopic dermatitis (AD) is a common chronic inflammatory skin disorder in children. Often called eczema, AD is a papulosquamous eruption often characterized by pruritus and then the typical distribution and morphology of the rash (Saavedra  et al., 2013). Thus, an idiom often used by health care professionals to describe AD is “the itch that rashes.” Two leading organizations jointly authored an update on AD in 2012 (Schneider et al., 2013), and a third published several guidelines for the management of AD (Eichenfield et al. , 2013, 2014, 2015; Sidbury et al., 2014).
