Two Recent Studies on Eczema

I like to find research on eczema; I soak up whatever I can, in the hopes something we'll just click and it may be the answer we've been looking for to heal Ry's skin. This doesn't really happen, but I still learn a lot and think some of the studies are worth sharing. Okay, some of them really aren't worth sharing, but in case somebody somewhere might benefit from them, I still like to post about an article when I come across one. Tonight, I came across a couple. This article is about breastfeeding and eczema. I am in no way suggesting that we should stop breastfeeding by six months because the article states that "...a new study finds that infants breastfed for longer periods may actually be more likely to develop the allergic skin condition eczema." I just want to pass the article along. The second articleis about children of higher educated parents being more likely to have eczema. So if you're interested in, check them out, and if not, oh well...
