Anyone that has been following my progress on light therapy may have seen the improvements during the course. Well it has now come to an end, actually it finished just over a week ago. and so here are the results. I have just put the start and finish comparisons on this post. This is after seven weeks of UVA light therapy. How long it will last, I don’t know. All I know is that I am sleeping, not itching and not sore. It is a liberating feeling.
The marks you can still see are more like shadows of what was there, little reminders as the skin heals. I do still have some patches of dry skin which I keep an eye on and even with skin this clear, I cannot let my guard down. It has been nice to not have to use quite as much sticky ointments and cream as usual though.
Thank you to the nurses at Broomfield Hospital for their care and advice. It has been a difficult seven weeks and I could never have done it without the support of my family, friends, my work colleagues and the nurses. Thank you all.
