Efficient application of external softening and moisturizingdrugs for the treatment of atopic dermatitis in children


The article presents data confirming the efficacy of external application of Locobase Repair cream and Atoderm cream in a combination
with hydrocortisone 17-butyrate 0.1% (Locoid ointment) in children aged from 6 months to 12 years suffering from moderate
atopic dermatitis. The patients were followed up for a year. The treatment efficacy was estimated according to the dynamics of
the SCORAD index and skin instrumental examination indices (corneometry, tewametry and pH-metry). The life quality in children
younger than 5 years was estimated based on the Childrens Dermatology Life Quality Index (CDLQI). The external therapy mentioned
above resulted in the decreased frequency of atopic dermatitis exacerbations, their reduced severity, increased duration of
inter-recurrent periods and reduced need in topical corticosteroids.
