Best of luck Jan. I’m very fair skinned and ended up getting burned during my phototherapy.

Hiya it worked for me on my body but not my scalp. I got referred by dermatologist. And yes it eventually came back again x

Ruben @ruben

Helped for me, but same as Brian I was quite burnt after the treatments. Had 20 sessions in a UV (can't remember if it was A or B) at the dermatologist. Combined with cortisone ointments (one with tar and a small amount of cortisone and one with a lot of cortisone)
Helped for a year, then came back...

Hey!! Light therapy did not work for me and I took it for a month I presume, but it was just okay...
