Skin patch shows promise for children with milk-induced eosinophilic esophagitis

A new study finds that a skin patch may be useful in treating children with a painful, chronic condition called eosinophilic esophagitis (EoE) triggered by milk. Among 20 children with EoE who wore Viaskin Milk — a skin patch measuring just over an inch long containing trace amounts of milk protein — nine saw an improvement in their symptoms and normalization of their biopsies after 11 months.
