BACKGROUND The study of probiotics to prevent allergic conditions has yielded conflicting results in children. [] Key MethodMETHODS We performed a systematic literature search in Medline, Embase, and Cochrane Library, updated to October 2011. The intervention was diet supplementation with probiotics versus placebo. Primary outcomes were incidence of atopic dermatitis and IgE-associated atopic dermatitis.
Probiotics for prevention of atopic diseases in infants: systematic review and meta‐analysis
TLDR
It is shown that probiotic supplementation prevents infantile eczema, thus suggesting a new potential indication for probiotic use in pregnancy and infancy.
PROBIOTICS IN PRIMARY PREVENTION OF ATOPIC DERMATITIS IN INFANTS AT RISK OF SUFFERING IT: METAANALYSIS
TLDR
It was found that the use of probiotics during pregnancy reduces the risk of atopic dermatitis in infants with an odds ratio of 0.64 and confidence intervals of 95% from 0.5 to 0.82.
Probiotics in Pregnancy: Are Probiotics Preventative Against Infantile and Childhood Atopic Dermatitis?
TLDR
The impact of prenatal and postnatal maternal probiotic supplements on the prevention of infantile and childhood atopic dermatitis was analyzed through the University of Ottawa Search+ database and little heterogeneity exists in the findings.
Association between probiotic supplementation and asthma incidence in infants: a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials
TLDR
The use of probiotic supplementation compared with placebo was not associated with a lower risk of asthma in infants, and findings do not support recommendation to use probiotics in the prevention of asthmaIn infants.
Probiotic supplementation during pregnancy or infancy for the prevention of asthma and wheeze: systematic review and meta-analysis
TLDR
It is found no evidence to support a protective association between perinatal use of probiotics and doctor diagnosed asthma or childhood wheeze, and randomised controlled trials to date have not yielded sufficient evidence to recommend probiotics for the primary prevention of these disorders.
Perinatal probiotic supplementation in the prevention of allergy related disease: 6 year follow up of a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Maternal probiotic ingestion alone may be sufficient for long term reduction in the cumulative incidence of AD, but not other allergy related diseases.
Systematic review and meta‐analysis on the use of probiotic supplementation in pregnant mother, breastfeeding mother and infant for the prevention of atopic dermatitis in children
TLDR
A systematic review and meta‐analysis showed that a mixture of probiotic supplementation given to the mother in pregnancy and continuing while breastfeeding and also to the infant in children classified as high‐risk for atopic dermatitis and non‐high‐risk groups is the most efficacious in reducing the risk of incidence of atopic Dermatitis in children.
The Role of Probiotics in the Prevention and Treatment of Atopic Dermatitis in Children: An Updated Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials
TLDR
It is demonstrated that interventions with probiotics potentially lower the incidence of AD and relieve AD symptoms in children, particularly when treating infants and children aged ≥ 1 year with AD.

Impact of maternal supplementation with probiotics during pregnancy on atopic eczema in childhood – a meta-analysis
TLDR
The meta-analysis of seven randomised, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials shows that the administration of lactobacilli during pregnancy prevents atopic eczema in children aged from 2 to 7 years, and a mixture of various bacterial strains does not affect the development of atopic Eczema, independent of whether they contain lactOBacilli or not.
Probiotic Supplement Reduces Atopic Dermatitis in Preschool Children
TLDR
The administration of a probiotic mixture containing L. acidophilus DDS-1, B. lactis UABLA- 12, and fructo-oligosaccharide was associated with significant clinical improvement in children with AD, with corresponding lymphocyte subset changes in peripheral blood.

TLDR
Feeding Lactobacillus F19 during weaning could be an effective tool in the prevention of early manifestation of allergy, e.g., eczema.
Effect of probiotic Lactobacillus strains in children with atopic dermatitis.
TLDR
A combination of L rhamnosus 19070-2 and L reuteri DSM 122460 was beneficial in the management of AD, and the effect was more pronounced in patients with a positive skin prick test response and increased IgE levels.
