Of the parameters evaluated itching, scaling, oozing, erythema, fissures, papules, vesiculo-pustules, partial alopecia, broken stumps of hair, kerion formation and ring formation with central clearing showed 86.6%, 80%, 90%, 70%, 44.4%, 58.3%, 54.4%, 71.4%, 71.4%, 55%, 84% improvement, respectively.
