Hi,
You can take probiotic while on Prednisone for 2-4 weeks.
As you have eczema so you can try specific strain like Lactobacillus reuteri 100 million live bacteria daily, or Lactobacillus sakei 5 billion live bacteria twice daily.
And also drink plenty of fluids.



Hope this helps.

I have some allergen Free Jarro-Dophilus with10 billion per capsule. L. acidophilus LA-02, L paracasei LPC-00, L plantarum LP-01, L rhamnosus LR-04, B. Lactis BS-01, B. Breve BR-03. Will they be beneficial to possibly helping with my Atopic Dermatitis? or do you have any other recommendations. I am allergic to nuts/fish/shellfish for sure and possibly gluten.

Expert:  Dr. Nitika replied 11 months ago.
Hi,
If you are having allergy to various strains so you should avoid them as probiotics can aggravate your symptoms.
You should try metamucil which can be safe and effective in your case.
Even you can take it on a daily basis with no side effects.

Sorry but your answer did not give me an answer? I did not say I had any reactions to the probiotics but gave you the brand name I purchased with the ingredients and was wondering if these would help with my eczema. Do you not like probiotics

Expert:  Dr. Nitika replied 11 months ago.
Hi,
Sorry for late reply and misunderstanding
You can try Jarro-Dophilus with 10 billion per capsule. L. acidophilus LA-02, L paracasei LPC-00 which help in your Atopic Dermatitis.
They are preferably to take empty stomach to get good results.

Hope this helps.
