Some strain of probiotic like L. rhamnosus can help in allergy and eczema.
But still it is under study.
It can take years to show any effect.
You can discuss with his allergy specialist or pediatrician whether he recommends it as it is still in the research stage.
I hope this information will be helpful.If you have any query, please feel free to ask.If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.Wish his healthy life.Regards.
Long term use of cortisone cream may cause thinning of skin.
As you rub the cream over the skin, very little amount would enter into the mouth if the babies put their hands inside mouth, it is not significant.
It is usually months or years.
