Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To search for an effective therapy for neurodermatitis.

METHODS:

RESULTS:

The cured rate and the total effective rate were 51.9% and 96.3% in the treatment group, and 28.6% and 81.0% in the control group, respectively, with a significant difference between the two groups in the therapeutic effect (P < 0.05).

CONCLUSION:
