Dermatology researchers at Emory University School of Medicine are recruiting volunteers for the following two experimental drug studies.

Persons with the burning and itching between toes associated with athlete's foot are being recruited for a study of an investigational topical medication. They will be asked to visit Emory four times over a four-month period.

Adults and children over two with eczema (atopic dermatitis) are being recruited for a study of an experimental topical medication. Qualified participants will make eight visits to Emory over a three-month period.

Volunteers for these studies will be asked to visit the Dermatology Research Unit, (6B South), Emory University Hospital, 1364 Clifton Rd., N.E., Atlanta.

All medications, tests and examinations associated with the studies will be provided without charge. Monetary compensation for time and travel may also be available in some studies.
