Psi, looks, can help protect children from developing eczema and relieve asthma symptoms.
If you're in need of any excuse to get a hairy quadruple companion or that one you're currently having a spit on because he was obedient, a new study might help you.
Research shows that dogs can help protect children from developing not only eczema but also asthma. It is strange that, in certain situations, this finding proved to be positive even when it comes to a child who is allergic to animals.
Scientists wanted to see whether the presence of a dog in the household had any effect on said childhood conditions. Ecstasy is more common in children than in adults, causing the skin to become red, dry and itchy. Asthma, like an inflammatory airways disease, usually occurs in children living in urban environments.
In addition to the aforementioned, two studies have investigated how the exposure to dogs contributes to different development points. presented at the annual scientific meeting American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI)
"Although eczema is most common in infants, many people do not know there is progression from eczema to food allergies, all the way to nose allergies and asthma," said algologist Gagandeep Cheema, who was the leader of the first research on the impact of dogs on eczema. "We wanted to know if there was any protective effect on dogs that slowed down that progress."
The study, either leading Cheem's, was watching the incidence of eczema in children whose mothers were exposed to dogs at least one hour per day during their pregnancy. "We have found that maternal exposure to dogs and before childbirth is significantly associated with a lower risk of eczema at age two, and that protective effect lasts up to ten years," said co-author Edward M. Zoratti.
In another study, studying the impact that dogs have on asthma in childhood, the results were a little more complicated. This study looked at the effect of two different effects that dogs have on children with asthma. The first effect was on a protein that affects children with allergies to dogs, and the other were bacteria found in dog fur.
They learned that non-allergic bacteria have a protective effect against asthma symptoms in children, but also that the protein and the same symptoms get worse. Such a mixed result, however, means that exposure to animals is unlikely to be recommended to those with asthma who are allergic to the animals, but a new therapy that facilitates bacterial symptoms can be provided.
