UV B therapy
Aug 21, 2005

My dermatologist suggest using UVB therapy to treat my chronic ezcema. He suggested a whole bodytreatment 2x a week for 15-30 minutes each for about a year. Can you please comment and tell me the risk?

Response from Dr. Young

UV therapy for chronic ezcema is a well established, and generally safe method of treatment. I don't think that I'd be too concerned. BY
