Abstract

Objectives : This study is to report a case of chronic allergic contact dermatitis, treated with Korean medicine, primarily focused on Oryeong-san. Methods : A 43-year-old female has suffered from dermatitis in axillary, lower abdominal, inguinal and popliteal area for more than 10 years. She was diagnosed with chronic allergic contact dermatitis accompanied by skin symptoms such as severe pruritus, erythema, skin pigmentation, papules and lichenification, and by decreased quality-of-life. She received Korean medicine treatment including herbal medicine, acupuncture and herbal external medication for 4 months. Results : The skin symptoms such as pruritus, erythema, skin pigmentation, papules and lichenification were remarkably improved. Also, the NRS of pruritus changed from 10 to under 1, and the DLQI score changed from 29 to 6. Conclusions : This case report suggests that Korean medicine, especially Oryeong-san may have a role in treating skin symptoms such as pruritus, erythema, skin pigmentation, papules and lichenification in the patients diagnosed with chronic allergic contact dermatitis. Also, the improvement of skin symptoms treated with Korean medicine may result in quality-of-life improvement in those patients.
