To explore the effects of Qingshi Cream, a compound traditional Chinese herbal medicine, on chronic dermatitis-eczema in mice induced by 2,4-dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB).

Thirty BALB/C mice were randomly divided into vaseline group, 0.1% mometasone furoate cream group and Qingshi Cream group. Right ears of BALB/C mice were repeatedly challenged with 0.1% DNCB every three days for five times and previously sensitized with 7% DNCB to induce chronic dermatitis-eczema. Mice in different groups were applied Qingshi Cream, 0.1% mometasone furoate cream and vaseline respectively after each challenge. Weight difference of two ears, pathological change of right ear and dermal inflammatory cell number were used to assess the effects of the drugs.

After the 5th challenge, weight differences of two ears in the 0.1% mometasone furoate cream group and the Qingshi Cream group were significantly decreased as compared with that in the vaseline group. Changes such as ear swelling thickening and cellular infiltration in dermis were observed, and these features seemed to be more significant in the vaseline group as compared with the 0.1% mometasone furoate cream group and the Qingshi Cream group.

Qingshi Cream has an obvious effect in treatment of chronic dermatitis-eczema in mice.

Key words: Chronic dermatitis-eczema, Qingshi Cream, Mice
