The basis of balneotherapy in occupational dermatoses with special regard to the use of radium emanations

, : The basis of balneotherapy in occupational dermatoses with special regard to the use of radium emanations. Berufsdermatosen 11(3): 150-160

In dermatology, the general effect of a balneotherapy is due to a large number of therapeutical, mechanical, chemical, pharmacological, physical and biological factors which are present, although in very small amounts, in medicinal springs. These factors will achieve a healing effect only when used as a complex therapy. The balneotherapy of skin diseases can be performed with all sorts of medicinal springs (feably mineralized springs, acidulous springs, wells containing sodium chloride, alcalis or calcium, arseniferous, iodiferous and sulphureous springs, brine baths, sea baths, carbon-dioxide baths). The therapeutical action of the modern dermatological therapy by radio-active sulphureous baths is emphasized. About 1500 patients with skin diseases were treated successfully with radio-active sulphureous baths. The improvement manifested itself in a sedative, analgetic, antipruriginous and antiphlogistic effect, and in the epithelization of the lesions. Radio-active sulphureous baths are particularly indicated in occupational dermatoses.
