Seventeen cases of various types of atopic dermatitis were treated by topical application of an ointment containing demeclocycline and triamcinolone acetonide in a lanolin and white petrolatum base. Results were assessed clinically, subjectively and histologically (biopsy specimens). All patients improved; in 10 of the 17 patients, the clinical improvement was over 75 percent. The ointment had a remarkable antipruritic effect which was evident on the fourth day of treatment. No untoward effects were noticed.
