Patients in the 30 mg group responded better than in the 10 mg group. Loss of epidermal scaffolding proteins such as involucrin, envoplakin, and periplakin is associated with alterations in epidermal barrier function and altered formation of cornified epidermal envelope. In different studies, oral retinoids were found to be useful in chronic hand eczema refractory to corticosteroids.
