The role of antihistamines in chronic actinic dermatitis treatment

Cover Page

Cite item


Inveterate actinic dermatitis is an immunologically mediated photodermatosis characterized by itchy eczematous dermhelminthiasis exposed to sunlight. The disease proceeds in the same way as the atopic eczema or atopic dermatitis. The treatment of patients with inveterate actinic dermatitis is similar to the treatment of patients with atopic dermatitis and eczema. Administration of the modern antihistaminic preparation desloratadine (Aerius) in the treatment has a positive effect on the skin process relief and on some cellular and humoral immunity factors.
