UVB Light Therapy

Has anyone tried UVB Light Therapy for their eczema? My skin always gets better when I go somewhere warm and sunny (I live in a cold, dry climate in Canada). I've been doing a lot of reading on narrowband UVB light therapy and am thinking of purchasing a device so I can do spot treatment in my own home. Does anyone know if this works?

Thanks!

Re: UVB Light Therapy

Hello,
I would always suggest speaking with you Dr First.
After having my first child my eczema blew up and the only thing that did help me was my light treatment unit. I was 90% covered. Personally it was about weighing the benefits to the possible side effects. Just like the sun it can age you , cause burns ,and possibly skin cancer.

For me tho I couldn’t live a normal everyday life without it at that period. It helped keep any infections at bay and kept reactions low. While not perfect It also seemed a more natural way to go then taking Methotrexate or more steroids.

Hopefully this helps.
Good luck!
