Department of Dermatology, University of California Medical School, San Francisco.

Abstract

The effects of occlusion on skin function are described and reviewed. Occlusion seems to be not only a device applied on the skin surface, but, under certain conditions, a powerful treatment capable of inducing several changes on epidermal metabolism, skin flora, sweat glands and epidermal morphology.
