Abstract

Dry skin dermatitis is a common skin disease, associated with aging and environmental changes. Damaged skin from xerosis can be evaluated with several objective methods such as D-squame, transepidermal water loss (TEWL), corneometer, and a pH meter. Forty-two patients with xerosis participated in this study. We assessed the effects of Korean red ginseng after 6 weeks of taking the medicine. Patients who treated with Korean red ginseng were clinically improved but the results were measured by D-squame, TEWL, corneometer, and a pH meter did not show statistical significant. These data indicate that Korean red ginseng may be a useful health supplement. However, further study that include more large patients’ group would be required.
