 Abstract
Objectives : Acne vulgaris is a common skin disorder prevalent among adolescence into adulthood, and its consequences can be detrimental especially for women. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of Yukul-tang Gamibang (YG) on female acne vulgaris. Methods : We treated 2 cases of female acne patients diagnosed as ‘Stagnation Pattern’ with herbal medication and external treatments. Herbal medication was orally administered 2 times a day and external treatments were applied once a week on average during the whole treatment period. Results : Photographs were taken at the start of each session, and the pictures of before and after the treatment period were compared. The severity of acne vulgaris was evaluated according to the Korean Acne Grading System (KAGS). We observed clinical improvement and decrease in KAGS grades after treatment. Conclusions : After taking YG, acne vulgaris was significantly improved in both patients. The results suggest that YG may be effective in treating acne vulgaris in female patients diagnosed as ‘Stagnation Pattern’.
