Abstract

Some dermatoses, notably bullous pemphigoid and pemphigus vulgaris, can be fatal, and prompt therapy with systemic glucocorticoids may be necessary. Occlusion with an impermeable film, such as plastic wrap, constitutes a most effective method of enhancing penetration, yielding approximately a tenfold increase over the nonoccluded application.
