- Wavebreak/Istock.com pic via AFPLONDON, Nov 15 ― Individuals who are breastfed as babies exclusively from birth for a sustained period have a lower risk of developing eczema in their teenage years according to a new worldwide study.

"The WHO (World Health Organization) recommends between four and six months of exclusive breastfeeding to aid prevention of allergy and associated illness", lead author Carsten Flohr of the King's College London said in a statement.

Half of the maternity hospitals and pediatric clinics involved in the study were randomly assigned to receive a breastfeeding promotion intervention, while the other half continued their usual practices.

The UK has one of the lowest rates of breastfeeding in the world - only one in three UK-born babies have received any breast milk, compared with 49 per cent in the United States and 71 per cent in Norway, according to medical journal The Lancet.

Babies who are breastfed exclusively could have a lower risk of developing eczema in their teenage years according to new research. In addition, there were less frequent self-reports of flexural eczema symptoms in the past year (OR, 0.57; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.27 to 1.18), asthma (OR, 0.76; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.47 to 1.23), and wheezing in the past year (OR, 0.66; 95 percent confidence interval, 0.37 to 1.18) in the intervention versus the control group, but confidence intervals were wide and included the null.
