 Abstract
Objectives : The purpose of this study is to report the effectiveness of a Korean Medicine Treatment on 89 severe atopic dermatitis patients all through 12 months. Methods : The degree of atopic dermatitis was measured in Objective SCORAD Index (OSI) with photos of patients. Then, the OSI score was estimated according to gender, age and intensity. Results : 1. The ratio of male to female was 41.57 : 58.43. The 24.72% of patients were in 0~11 year-old group, 16.85% were in 12~18 year-old group and 58.43% were in the group above 19 years old. 2. The initial OSI score was 64.43 and the final was 37.03 after 12 months. After 3, 6, 9, 12 months, the OSI score was significantly lower than the initial visit. 3. There was no significant difference between male and female patients on age, OSI scores and OSI improvements. 4. The patients who treated acupuncture were significantly older then who not treated. The OSI improvement had no significant difference whether treated with acupuncture or not. 5. There was no significant difference among 3 different age groups on initial OSI scores. The OSI improvement of 0~11 year-old group was significantly higher than the other groups after 12 month treatment. 6. The OSI score of 97.75% was decreased after 12 month treatment compared to initial visit. 7. After 12 month treatment, the distribution of severe atopic dermatitis was decreased from 100% to 37.08%. 8. There was no significant difference betweent steroid group and non-steroid group on OSI scores at initial visit and after 12 month treatment. Conclusions : The OSI Score of severe atopic dermatitis patients was decreased on the significant rate with Korean medicine treatment for 12 months.
