Light Treatment

May 17, 2008 6:32pm CST
I have been having UVA light treatment for my P for about a month now, and it's cleared it up immensley. Where it has been, there are still slight pink marks, but the raised areas have gone completley :) There's also UVB light treatment, but I'm not sure what the difference is? Anyone know? Has anyone else ever tried this? Was it successful?

Hi, Ive had both treatments over the years and found that while they worked in the short term the condition came back after 4-6 months. I was about 70% covered and finally ended up on biologics about three years ago. They seem to work and have it under control to some degree. I'm using embrel.

I am doing UVB now since Jan. 08 What a total difference. I no longer have the lesions but I have to keep doing treatments at least once a week or it starts to come back.
