Emollients or moisturizers can act as an important adjunctive therapy of topical treatment in psoriatic patients. However, the interest of emollients has never been clearly demonstrated; i.e. are they able to improve topical treatment efficacy and/or maintain continuous remission of the disease? The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of an emollient on patients with mild plaque psoriasis during and after standard local corticosteroid therapy. Results showed that the use of an emollient can limit relapses after the end of corticotherapy, and maintain the improvement obtained after 1 month corticotherapy at clinical level (physician global assessment) and skin dryness.
