The effect of occlusive treatment on human skin: an electron microscopic study on epidermal morphology as affected by occlusion and dansyl chloride
Lindberg M, Johannesson A, Forslind B.
The effect of occlusion on epidermal morphology was studied at electron microscopic resolution. the morphological changes recorded were relatively mild, though conspicuous, and consisted in dilatation of the intercellular space, appearance of cytoplasmic vacuoles and an oedematous change in the dermis. Stereological analysis showed that the dilatation of the intercellular space had a biphasic time ...

The influence of topical steroid application on tuberculin skin reactions in healthy persons
Kriatian Thestrup-Pedersen, Hanna Ahlburg, Pia Hansen, Poul Ølholm Larsen
Thirty-seven healthy persons were studied in order to evaluate the influence of topical steroid application on tuberculin skin reactions. Four areas measuring 4 cm in diameter were each treated with 50 micrograms of hydrocortisone cream 1%, or 50% micrograms of halcinonide (Halog) cream 0.1%, or 50 micrograms of unguentum cetacei simplex (cold cream), or not treated. The creams were applied once d ...
