6381. An effective, cosmetically acceptable, novel hydro-gel emollient for the management of dry skin conditions. (Abstract)

An effective, cosmetically acceptable, novel hydro-gel emollient for the management of dry skin conditions. A novel hydro-gel emollient (Doublebase) has been developed with improved moisturizing effects.To test this novel hydro-gel for its moisturizing effect, for its potential to cause skin irritancy/allergy and for its clinical effectiveness and acceptability in dry skin conditions.Skin hydration (corneometry) and trans-epidermal water loss (TEWL) studies with a single application in 18 (...) of 78 patients with dry skin conditions.Doublebase may be considered a suitable preparation that can be used effectively by most patients with dry skin conditions.

6382. Advised best practice for the use of emollients in eczema and other dry skin conditions. (Abstract)

Advised best practice for the use of emollients in eczema and other dry skin conditions. The recent Dermatological Care Working Group report highlighted important deficiencies in the dermatology service in the UK and recommended that care should move closer to the patient. The report stated that 'expert patients' could become 'sharers in their care' and are best placed to improve their own self management. One area that could benefit greatly from increased patient education and participation (...) is the use of emollients. Emollients are frequently prescribed for patients with eczema and other dry skin conditions. Although the benefits of emollient therapy are widely accepted, prescribing practices vary considerably, often according to physicians' individual preferences. Patients can receive confusing or conflicting treatment advice, leading to frustration, non-compliance, and difficulty in following an effective regimen. To promote the effective use of emollients it is important for patients

6383. Dynamics of the skin blood flow response to histamine. Comparison of the effects of cetirizine and loratadine on the skin response to a histamine dry prick test monitored with laser-Doppler flowmetry. (Abstract)

Dynamics of the skin blood flow response to histamine. Comparison of the effects of cetirizine and loratadine on the skin response to a histamine dry prick test monitored with laser-Doppler flowmetry. In previous studies, we noticed that intradermal injection of histamine solutions might significantly complicate the interpretation of clinical data and of laser-Doppler flowmetry recordings (LDF). Therefore, we used the histamine dry skin prick test (HPT) for pharmacological studies (...) . In this study, LDF monitoring of the physiological skin response to histamine was made in a randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind study comparing the in vivo anti-H1 activity of cetirizine (10 mg) or loratadine (10 mg), 6 h after a single oral intake. As compared with responses recorded after intake of placebo, LDF readings performed at HPT sites (increase in LDF signal) and at 1 cm from HPT (reduction of LDF signal) conclusively illustrate the stable and almost complete blockade of H1 receptors

6384. To dry or not to dry? An assessment of the possible degradation in efficiency of preoperative skin preparation caused by wiping skin dry. Full Text available with Trip Pro

To dry or not to dry? An assessment of the possible degradation in efficiency of preoperative skin preparation caused by wiping skin dry. A controlled study of the effects of wiping skin dry after application of aqueous povidone-iodine was carried out in 24 subjects. There was no significant difference in the reduction from baseline counts of skin flora at 5, 30, 60 and 120 min between wiping the agent off after 30 s of application and leaving it to dry. It would appear that wiping skin dry
