The object of the study is an analysis of the efficacy of the nitrogen-siliceous thermal radon water out of the Tumninsky mineral spring (Khabarovsky region) for after-care of the chronic dermatoses.
Methods. Evaluation of a balneotherapeutic efficacy based on case studies of 105 patients with the use of dermatose area and severity index and biochemical indices.
Results. Under treatment recorded decrement of a Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI), Eczema Area and Severity Index (EASI) and SCORoring of Atopic Dermatitis (SCORAD) as well as a pronounced anti-inflammatory and anti-allergic effect of water corresponding to the certain biochemical indices.
Conclusions. Efficacy of balneotherapy based on native data amounted to 92.24 %, number of clinical recovery cases – 14,3 %, significant clinical improvement – 29.5 % and clinical improvement – 42.9 %.
