Experiences of Nine Years Using Ozonized Oil in Dermatology L. Falcón, D. Simón, S. Menéndez(1), S. Moya, E. Garbayo, W. Díaz(1). Dr. Carlos J. Finlay Military Hospital, Cuba. 1 - Ozone Research Center, Cuba. 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.
