Atopic dermatitis is characterized by skin barrier dysfunction, edema, and infiltration with various inflammatory cells. Horse oil, the purified form from horse fat, has been used for a long time by fork remedies on burn, wound, and various skin diseases. In this study, we investigated the improving effects of horse oil on atopic dermatitis induced by 0.3% of DNCB in mice. Horse oil B (oil phase, 100 mg/kg) significantly decreased serum IgE levels in experimental atopic dermatitis mice induced by DNCB. Also, horse oil A (cream phase, 100 mg/kg) and B alleviates atopic dermatitis symptoms (ear edema, inflammatory cell infiltration, and lymph node size). Overall, the effect of horse oil B was slightly better. These results suggest that horse oil can be a useful remedy to improve atopic dermatitis.
