The primary objective of this clinical study is to determine whether occlusion of triamcinolone 0.1% cream (TAC) used to treat eczema with hydrogel patch improves its efficacy. A secondary objective is to determine whether eczema improves under occlusion with hydrogel patch alone.
This will be a 6-week, open label, bilaterally-controlled single center study involving 30 subjects age 13 and older with eczema. The primary objective of this clinical study is to determine whether occlusion of triamcinolone 0.1% cream (TAC) used to treat eczema with hydrogel patch improves its efficacy. A secondary objective is to determine whether eczema improves under occlusion with hydrogel patch alone. All subjects will have 3 target lesions of similar severity followed throughout the study. Patients will apply hydrogel patch alone to the first lesion, TAC 0.1% cream to the second lesion, and TAC 0.1% cream occluded by hydrogel patch to the third lesion. All treatments are twice a day for a maximum of 4 weeks or until lesions are cleared. The modified Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) score will be used to evaluate each lesion.
