Light therapy

Postby nicallan on Fri Oct 13, 2017 12:12 am

Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and just looking for some advice on light therapy. My rosacea has got really bad over the last year, to the point that I didn’t want to go out as I was too embarrassed. I have literally tried everything but to no avail. I recently went on holiday which worried me as I was sure that the sun was going to make my rosacea worse, however it didn’t. Since I have come back I haven’t had any flushing or intense redness (it is really bad on my nose). My first thought was to go to the sun beds as it must be the UV light but for obvious reasons I don’t want to do that. That then got my thinking about light therapy and wondered what success people have had with it.

Would love to hear your thoughts

Thanks in advance
nicallan

Hi,
I found your comments about the sun really interesting. I have had mild rosacea for 15 years and last year it progressed to acne stage. I have been using anti bacterial medication for last year but its a battle. I have just spent 2 weeks in the sun (spain) and all traces of my acne and redness disappeared. IMy skin has never felt or looked so good. Within 24 hours of returning back home, the itching crawling, burning, and soreness is returning. ??? Could this be a lack of Vit D ? I am interested in talking to others with experience in the light therapy treatment.
Carol,
