I have, and it did help some.

No need to be nervous - it's just a bit boring!

hello emma, changing diet/lifestyle is safer, you start these things with ubv then you have to continue to keep it down with the skin, you stop it all comes back because,psoriasis is from within and not from the skin, its what we do that makes psoriasis of the skin happen,some changes in diet/lifestyle is better than none but, it is a choice a choice for everyone, i wish you well :)

Hi Emma, I haven't but have been on waiting list for it for 7 months. My consultation appointment finally came through for next week, and in this time it has cleared up! The irony... If you haven't found it already, on the top bar of Flaym there is a theme filter and there is a section in there called "light therapy" which collects posts on this subject - hope that may be interesting for you to browse...

Hi Emma, I did about 18 years ago. The psoriasis went completely for a few weeks, but then I reached my exposure limit and, as John rightly says, it all came back. After that I gave up going to the doctor entirely and now I use non-prescription plain moisturisers, I have a hand held blue light which I can use safely and daily, and I eat non-inflammatory foods. My skin isn't clear yet, but it's definitely calmer (very few flakes, no itching or burning) and I'm much happier.
