"If you’re constantly battling acne, eczema, rosacea or any number of other skin disorders, the solution may be in your fridge — not your bathroom cabinet. According to many progressive dermatologists, probiotic-rich foods like yogurt, kefir and kombucha can be even more effective in treating stubborn skin conditions than store-bought or prescription skin creams."

A "a plaster/bandage" comprised of probiotics has been developed in treating diseased skin, focusing mostly on acne (Acne vulgaris), infected atopic eczema lesions, venous leg ulcers, and (burn) wound infections, so that "the probiotic containing pads may be topically applied for the treatment of skin disorders without the need for a regular antibiotic treatment or as an adjunctive therapy."

Whether these probiotic dressings could be used for rosacea remains to be seen.
