  • Purpose: This study compared lifestyles of middle school students with and without atopic dermatitis in order to obtain the baseline information for health education. Methods: This study involved 256 students from 20 middle schools in Busan who suffered from atopic dermatitis and 231 students from 2 middle schools in Busan who did not have atopic dermatitis. Results: Students with atopic dermatitis had a lower family income (탑=16.99, p<.001) and were more likely to come from a nuclear family (탑=10.28, p<.001) than control students. 98% of the students with atopic dermatitis had several skin symptoms. 78.5% of students with atopic dermatitis reported experiencing difficulties in their daily because of their condition. Students with atopic dermatitis took shorter baths and used soap less frequently than the students in the control group. The students with atopic dermatitis cleaned their houses and bedclothes more often than normal students in an attempt to remove cockroaches and house-dust mites. Students with atopic dermatitis also ate fast and instant foods more often than normal students. Conclusions: Some lifestyle differences exist between students with and without atopic dermatitis. Therefore, education and guidance may be important to promote good health and improve lifestyle quality.

  • Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation between atopic dermatitis and a comprehensive diagnosis of Qi Blood Water in children with or without atopic dermatitis. Methods: We surveyed 206 children in Seoul Jungnang-gu nursery by reviewing the questionnaires following a medical examination. Comprehensive diagnosis of Qi Blood Water was investigated by questionnaires and composition scores and total scores were calculated from the symptom scores. Atopic dermatitis was diagnosed by ophthalmo.otolaryngo.dermatologist and atopic dermatitis symptom was measured by a Visual analogue scale(VAS). Comparisons between the atopic and non-atopic groups were made based on the atopic dermatitis symptom scale, composition scores and total scores. Results : 1. Of the 206 patients, 153(74.27%) were included in the non-atopic group, while 53(25.73%) were included in the atopic group. There was no difference in average age between the two groups. 2. The atopic dermatitis symptom scale of atopic group(3.21$\pm$2.018) was significantly higher than that of non-atopic group(0.04$\pm$0.28). 3. Qi deficiency, Qi stagnation, Blood stasis and Water congestion scores and the total scores of the atopic group were higher than those of the non-atopic group, but it was not significant. 4. The Qi regurgitation and Blood deficiency scores of atopic group were significantly higher than those of the non-atopic group. 5. There was a highly significant correlation between the atopic dermatitis symptom scale and Qi regurgitation scores, and between the atopic dermatitis symptom scale and Blood deficiency scores. Conclusion : Atopic dermatitis seems to have a special feature reflecting the state of comprehensive diagnosis of Qi regurgitation and Blood deficiency in children.

  • The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between demographic characteristics and atopic dermatitis, along with adolescents' body mass index. Also, this study explored the association between dietary intakes (fruits, soda, caffeinated beverages, instant food, cracker, vegetables, and milk) of adolescents and atopic dermatitis. Korea Youth Risk Behavior Web-based Survey for 2014 was used for data analysis, in which a total of 3,532,149 middle and high school students participated. Data were analyzed by descriptive analysis and logistic regression based on the complex sample design using SPSS ver.20.0 statistics. The results showed that males had a higher prevalence rate of atopic dermatitis than females. The significant association between body mass index and atopic dermatitis was found (F=46.625, P<0.001). Students who have higher levels of body mass index showed a higher prevalence rate of atopic dermatitis. Finally, the findings showed that the intake of vegetable and milk had associations with atopic dermatitis (F=6.795, P<0.001). Greater vegetable intake was associated with less atopic dermatitis whereas greater milk intake was associated with more atopic dermatitis prevalence. Based on the above results, we found that demographic characteristics, body mass index, and some dietary food intakes of adolescents had influences on prevalence rate of atopic dermatitis.

  • Atopic Dermatitis is chronic eczematous dermatosis which is related strongly to a family history of atopic disease and hereditary disposition. Its threshold of itching is low so that severe itching occurs and causes secondary eczema. The purpose of this study was to estimate the efficiency of oriental medical treatment and management on atopic Dermatitis. We studied 2 patients who visited Wonkwang University Kwangju Oriental Hospital Dept. of Dermatol. with atopic dermatitis from April 2004 to February 2005. We treated him with herb-medication, acupuncture, negative therapy, full spectrum visible ray therapy(by carbon arc). We used the ADSI(Atopic Dermatitis Severity Index) to assess the severity of atopic dermatitis. The grade of the severity of atopic dermatitis was lower only by the traditional chinese medical treatments and management. Considering the above result, more study is needed the factors of increasing severity of atopic dermatitis, and the clinical interchange or atopic Dermatitis between oriental medicine and western medicine.

  • Atopic dermatitis is a chronic inflammatory skin condition including severe pruritus, xerosis, visible eczematous skin lesions that mainly begin early in life. Atopic dermatitis exerts a profound impact on the quality of life of patients and their families. The estimated lifetime prevalence of atopic dermatitis has increased 2~3 fold during over the past 30 years, especially in urban areas in industrialized countries, emphasizing the importance of life-style and environment in the pathogenesis of atopic diseases. While the interplay of individual genetic predisposition and environmental factors contribute to the development of atopic dermatitis, the recent increase in the prevalence of atopic dermatitis might be attributed to increased exposure to various environmental factors rather than alterations in human genome. In recent decades, there has been an increasing exposure to chemicals from a variety of sources. In this study, the effects of various environmental chemicals we face in everyday life - air pollutants, contact allergens and skin irritants, ingredients in cosmetics and personal care products, and food additives - on the prevalence and severity of atopic dermatitis are reviewed.

  • The purpose of this study was to get adequate substitute snacks for atopic dermatitis children. For this purpose food preference was surveyed by questionnaires to atopic dermatitis children in the kindergarten of Incheon area. As a result, anthropometric measurements were not significantly different by gender Most of atopic children were severe malnutrition by Rohrer index average 1.375. $13.3\%$ of atopic dermatitis started during newborn baby. $62.3\%$ of atopic dermatitis symptom started from 7 months to 3 years old. $48.9\%$ of atopic children didn't know the causes of the symptom. Though parents didn't thought instant/retort food, fried food, egg, snacks, milk were good for atopic dermatitis, they have offered egg, milk, meat, mackerel to their atopic dermatitis children for growth. Snacks of atopic dermatitis children were positively correlated between children's eating and favorite snacks(r=0.84), children's eating and parents' wishing snacks (r=0.615) and children's favorite and parents' wishing snacks(r=0.23). Therefore $83.7\%$ of atopic dermatitis children and their parents wanted reliable processed foods, $83.3\%$ of them despite high cost.

  • Objective : The objective of this study is to analyze an increasing rate, difference of attack rate in age, relationship between atopic dermatitis and breast-feeding, the relationship between atopic dermatitis and the Sasang constitution, and various treatments of atopic dermatitis. Methods : This clinical study was carried out with 22 theses which are related with diagnosis, treatments, prognosis and control of atopic dermatitis. The 22 theses are carried on J Korean Oriental Pediatrics, J Korean Oriental Ophthalmology, J Korean Oriental Med, J Korean Academy of Pediatric Allergy and Respiratory Disease, J Korean Acad Fam Med and Korean J Food & Nutr. Results : The prevalence rate, attack rate and diagnosis rate of atopic dermatitis are increased in the year of 2000, compared with those of 1995. Comparing age of patient between the year of 1992 and 2002, the attack rate of atopic dermatitis is increased quickly over 7 years old. Specific immunoglobulin E(IgE) antibodies detected in patients under 1 year old was exclusively caused by food. But for the age over 7 years old, food and inhalant allergen are detected in the year of 2002 in compare with that of 1992. Because of breast-feeding, intemperate diet adjustment during the period of maternity of family history of atopic dermatitis, the attack rate of atopic dermatitis is increased in infant. The types of patients are categorized according to Sasang constitution and Soeumin group was largest. The Oriental medicine treatments of atopic dermatitis are bath & skin hydration, avoidance from antigen, dietetic treatment, external treatment, medication and phototherapy. Conclusion : The atopic dermatitis is associated with breast-feeding, Sasang constitution types. More active approach for the treatment and prevention of Atopic dermatitis in children are needed.

  • Objectives: The objective of this study is to investigate the correlation between genetic studies on atopic dermatitis. sasang constitution, and sasang constitional study on atopic dermatitis. Methods: We retrieved data on PubMed for the papers of genetic study on atopic dermatitis. And for the papers on genetic study of sasang constitution and sasang constitional study of atopic dermatitis, we referred to papers have reported on domestic medical journal and domestic korean medicine journal. And we investigated correlations among the studies. Results: 1. There are two studies on genetic study on atopic dermatitis. One has been performed to find out genes related to atopic dermatitis by case-control study. The other has been to investigate the correlation between atopic dermatitis and the genes their functions were well-known. 2. Gene study on sasang constitution was performed to observe the distribution of the genes which is related with characteristics of sasang constitution, but there was no significant maldistribution of the genes. 3. There was no correlation between genetic study on atopic dermatitis and genetic study on sasang constitution. Conclusion & Discussion: In the Sasang constitutional study of atopic dermatitis, it seems that further studies on genes related to characteristics of skin, character affecting on behavior, and neurobiological difference among Sasang constitution are required as well as studies on distribution of genes related atopic dermatitis.
