Scaly skin lesions are caused by decreased water content of the stratum corneum, despite the well-known fact that they usually show increased water passage. By performing simultaneous measurements of transepidermal water loss (TEWL) to check the water-barrier function of the stratum corneum and cutaneous conductance to the high-frequency electric current of 3.5 MHz, which is an indicator of skin-surface hydration state, in patients with psoriasis who had lesions of various grades of severity… CONTINUE READING
