woodruff I still have a light unit at my home. Haven't used it in years. At one point I was taking a pill and then going to the dermatologist office to use their light. It was different than mine. I had the most amazing tan. I did find out that there is a higher incidence of skin cancer though with the light units. I don't think it's a big deal for a while though. Good luck to you.

I haven't tried it, but re what Flaym didn't let you post, I have to ask, did you maybe exceed the character limit on original posts, it's 250 characters which includes spaces. Comments on the other hand can be much more longwinded.

Might have been a glitch woodruff. I've experienced the odd glitch but it sorts itself out. That wording would have been fine. Honestly, they just don't let us post publicly prescription drugs. That's all I know that they censor. Otherwise we pretty much chat about everything. You only have a short amount of space though when you are writing a new post. The letters will count down on the top right. Once you hit 0 then no more words can be posted but you can continue your post in the comments after. Hope that helps.

@woodruff: As you can see in your actual response it was possible to post the phrase in question. James and Susan explained the content limitations perfectly, thanks!

@will21: Whoops. Our tiny hands hit the emoji by accident ;-)

Hi Matthew, that's great you have your own light unit at home! Is it something you can stand inside or something that you use by hand to get affected spots?
