Modern aspects of treatment of allergic dermatitis with the secondary fungal infections
Keywords:allergic dermatitis, fungal infection, skin, treatment
Allergic skin disease pathology is widespread in the world and in the last decade has attracted the attention of doctors. In Ukraine, 40 % of adults and children suffer from all types of allergic dermatitis.
The aim of this work is to study the current state of treatment of allergic dermatitis complicated with the secondary fungal infection, and substantiate the necessity for creating the extemporaneous ointment for the treatment of this skin pathology.
The known recommendations of doctors concerning the treatment of allergic dermatitis include measures aimed at excluding or reducing a contact with a variety of triggers, skin care (permanent cleaning and moisturizing) and the treatment of pruritus and chronic inflammation with anti-inflammatory medicines depending on the severity, localization of lesions of the skin, as well as skin infections associated with allergic dermatitis. In addition to the systemic therapy, the topical treatment of affected areas of the skin is also recommended for patients with allergic dermatitis. The external therapy should be carried out taking into account the clinical form and stages of the disease.
To analyze the existing extemporaneous formulations for the treatment of allergic dermatitis complicated with the secondary fungal infection prescriptions of various soft medicinal forms for treating allergic dermatitis approved by the Ministry of Public Health of Ukraine have been studied. The absence of antifungal components in their composition has been shown. The necessity of creating a new extemporaneous ointment for the treatment of allergic dermatitis complicated with the secondary fungal infection with the complex anti-allergic and antifungal action using a dry extract of licorice root, essential oil of lavender and terbinafine hydrochloride has been substantiated.
