The ozonized oils of vegetal source constitute an appropriate 
method for the local therapy of several diseases. The interaction 
of ozone with these oils produce a mixture of chemical compounds 
(ozonides and peroxides) with a great germicide power. The results 
of topical applications of ozonized oil (Oleozon) in 
dermatological diseases of viral, fungal and bacterial origin, 
during 9 years of study, were presented. Among the diseases of 
bacterial origin (for example, pyoderma), 600 patients were 
treated, obtaining a healing criterion in 87 %. According to 
mycotic diseases (for example, epidermophytosis, onychomycosis, 
etc), 1000 patients received the treatment, with 91 % of healing. 
In viral diseases (for example, herpes simplex), 300 patients were 
treated and in 72 % the relapses disappeared. Any side effect was 
observed.
