Manipulating skin microbiota to treat atopic dermatitis: insights from human studies

Skin-resident bacteria play a critical role in maintaining the skin's pH balance and preventing the growth of harmful microorganisms such as Staphylococcus aureus.

Recent research has shown that people with atopic dermatitis (AD) often have an imbalance in their skin microbiota. This can lead to a damaged skin barrier, increased skin pH, and significant loss of transepidermal water, which contribute to the symptoms of AD and can exacerbate the condition.

Therefore, therapeutic approaches that aim to restore the balance of the skin microbiota show promise in managing AD. Further research is necessary to optimize these interventions and develop innovative solutions for treating skin conditions in both humans and pets.
