ultra-violet light therapy
Feb 28, 2004
I had a friend mention something about ultra-violet light therapy for people with HIV/AIDS. To my knowledge, this form of treatment is only used for certain skin irritations but not for HIV per se. Can you please give me some additional information? Thanks...
Response from Dr. Pierone
Yes, ultra-violet light therapy is useful for certain skin conditions (psoriasis for example) but not for HIV.
