|22||Asteatotic Eczema [By Dr. Gautam Shah, Dhule, MH]|
|A 70 year old female patient was diagnosed with asteatotic eczema .
She was on continuous high doses of antibiotics and steroids for 3 months
pruritic, dry, cracked,skin with irregular scaling on the shin of the tibia
Asteatotic eczema is routinely treated with topical steroids and antibiotics.
Note that steroids can thin the cutaneous barrier and lower the threshold for further insults that lead to dermatitis, especially in elderly patients.
In addition, these agents modify the body's immune response to diverse stimuli.
We found ozone therapy effective in this and other such patients with dermatological disorders.
The medicating effect of ozone therapy is based on a high oxidative – restorative potential of ozone, its intense disinfection activity in direction of bacteria, viruses, fungi, and its activation of metabolistic processes.
Patient was treated with: Major auto haemotherapy, Bagging
Local ozonated oil application
