Measurement and Comparison of Hydration and Lipid Levels between Patients with Acne vulgaris and Patients with Atopic Dermatitis


BACKGROUND: Skin surtice lipids increase and decrease in tints with acne vulgaris and in patients with atopic dermatis, respectively. Notably, hydratior. in decreased in patients with atopic dermatitis. Clinically it is common for the two diseases to occur together.
We would like to find out the rate, clinical cteristics, and hydration and lipid levels when acne vulgaris and atopic dermatitis concur.
We classific the clinical levels and measured the hydration and lipid levels of the face and forearm area of patients with acne vulgaris, patients phatopic dermatitis, and patients with both diseases, who visited the Youngdong Severance Hospital.
1) 13.8% (14/102) of patients with acne vulgaris had at, epidermatitis. 31.1% (14/45) of patients with atopic dermatitis had acne vulgaris. 2) Patients with acne vulgaris had increased lipid levels and normal hydration levels. 3) Patients with atopie dermatitis had decreased lipid and iylration levels. 4) Patients withoth cnevulgaris and atopic dermatitis a no severe grade of acne vulgaris, and showed decreased hydration but normal lipid levels.
In patients with both arne vulgaris and atoic dermatitis, clinically acne vulgaris was not severe and hydation levels were lower than normal controls.
