Hi like you i have suffered with psoriasis for over 20yrs. For a long time it was just the usual knees and elbow patches, but over the last couple of years it has got progressively worse, with large patches on my lower back, buttocks, legs and a big patch on my chest. About 12 months ago it also started to REALLY itch, and if i scratched it, which felt such a relief, it would bleed. I was a bit of a mess with it and even found sleeping painful as i has flare ups on both hips.
I spoke to my doctor who referred me to a local dermo consultant but i was told it would be quite a wait (in fact im still waiting), so in desperation i went online, did my own research, and decided that the only ‘treatment’ i hadn’t tried was narrowband UVB.
I found a local company which offered hire units, however they had none available as they were all out on hire so i purchased a unit (interest free) and it was the best thing i ever did. I use it up to 3 times a week for no more than 1 min 20 secs per side and my psoriasis has virtually cleared up. No more itching, no more flaking, no more angry red patches. It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that it has changed my life. It has certainly lifted my spirits and made me feel much more confident and outgoing.
The unit was from this company –
I payed an initial deposit then £130 per month for 12 months.
