    I have had Psoriasis for 30 years, My trusk is covered with thin but widespread psoriasis.I am currently getting uvb tlo1 light treatment. I have has 9 sessions and am up to 1 minute. My trunk is showing signs of improvement,it is pinking off, but my legs are dry, flakey with plaque psoriasis.
    I was thinking of using salicylic acid to remove the scales followed by treating the harder patches with Dithranol paste to assist the benifets of the light treatment.
    Has anyone else tried this or do you have any other ideas
    how to address this. TA War

  • Hi there, I have got a full body…

    Hi there,
    I have got a full body UV light box - it is a Dr. Honle Dermalight 800 - in very good condition, but I am no longer using it and I am looking for a good home. They don't make the 800 anymore but these are the dimensions - complete with goggles, timers etc. It is big, and heavy and would need a careful collection from north London. Once installed though, it does glide around easily and can be stored upright.
    (LxWxH):
    800 x 800 x 1900 mm
    Weight of the unit:
    approx. 45 kg
    Power supply:
    230V / 50Hz / 20VA

    Here is a bit more blurb about it...

    The irradiation unit of the dermalight® 800 is continuously slewable by
    180° and enables therapy in standing, lying and sitting position. But
    also local treatment, f. ex. in the neck area, can be carried out without
    problems. The continuous height adjustment grants always the correct
    treatment distance.
    Exact dosage with the timer
    The treatment times can be dosed exactly with the separate electronic
    timer, which optimizes the therapy results. The unit is switched off automatically
    after having reached the adjusted therapy time. In case of interruptions
    the remaining time is stored.Thanks to the high UV-intensity, the
    treatment times are reduced, which reduces the formation of erythema
    and the cumulative dose.
    Indications
    UV-B/311nm
    · Psoriasis
    · Vitiligo
    UV-A
    · Neurodermatitis

    Any offer will be considered (it cost over £ 1K a few years ago, but this will need professional packing/shipping - or at least three strong people, loads of bubble wrap and a van! The bulbs will still have years to go, but are replaceable when necessary.

    Hi,

    I'm assuming you still have the light box. Did you find it worked well on your skin?

    Cheers

  • Hi Spencer1982 - re the light box.... Yes,…

    Posted by vstable on 30th September 2013 07:09PM

    Hi Spencer1982 - re the light box....
    Yes, it did clear my skin for about a year, but I have had PUVA treatment twice before, at a hospital, about 20 sessions each, so there is a limit of how much narrowband light I can take, and my skin has now started reacting and coming up in small blisters. If you have never tried Narrowband light treatment, and your Consultant Dermatologist thinks it's a good idea - doing the treatment at home saves the schlepp to the hospital 2-3 times a week, which I just couldn't manage... but this machine is a big deal - it does take up room - the ceiling must be 9 feet high - it looks a bit like a full body upright sunlamp.
    I thought it was wonderful when I first got it, as it did clear the patches, and I didn't have to leave the house for 30 seconds worth of treatment (then you slowly build up). I have got all the instructions and specifications, as you have to be very very careful to build up slowly and not burn. Let me know if you want to come and see it, or I can send you some photographs.
