I am deeply sorry for the really late eczema treatment update since I mentioned that I would do a an update every week mentioned from my last post on the 23rd of August. I will now do a one week update every day until I catch-up to today’s date in September.
For the new readers, I am currently on Narrowband UVB Phototherapy treatment for my eczema and it seems to be the only treatment that works so far after trying other numerous treatments and creams. You can find more information about this treatment from my old post here. I started the treatment in May and I’m still currently on it. Every time I go off the treatment my eczema will slowly come back, so this is unfortunately an ongoing treatment for me.
I have been taking a picture of some spots of my eczema everyday since early May and my plan was to make an update with those photos every week. Since I started the treatment on May and It’s now mid September I’ll do a one week update everyday to catch up.
You can see photos for week 0 & 1 here on May 13 & 19
and photos for week 2 & 3 here on May 23 & 30
Now for week 4 photos which were taken on June 6th.

For week 4 so far I used the photo-therapy booth 8 times since I started the treatment on May.
Visit #7 the dose was increased by 10% from 400 joules to 440 joules and I was in there for 3:03 minutes. (It’s getting hot)
Visit #8 the dose was increased by 10% from 440 joules to 484 joules and the time was 3:22 minutes (It’s getting hotter)
