Researchers from Cardiff University in Wales have found that antibiotics are not effective at treating children with mild cases of clinically infected eczema. Eczema, a common skin condition that affects 1 in 5 children in the United Kingdom, is often treated with antibiotics, particularly for bad cases, often called flares. Dr. Nick Francis, a clinical reader at Cardiff, said in a press release. “Our research shows that even if there are signs of infection, children with milder eczema are unlikely to benefit from antibiotics, and their use can promote resistance and allergy or skin sensitization. Providing or stepping up the potency of topical corticosteroids and emollients should be the main focus in the care of milder clinically infected eczema flares.”
