I've had phototherapy for the first time on 8th May. I take it 3 times a week. Phototherapy was very different from any other treatment I've had before - you stand naked in the machine of 360-degree fluorescent light tubes inside. People say it's similar to a tanning booth. According to the result of my skin test, I am sensitive to lights. I started from low level for 21sec. It then increased to 23sec on the second appointment, and 27sec on the third one.
Sadly though, after my third treatment I developed some cold sore near my eye and the strange infection on my chin. So I had to stop it for a while. I am currently taking Ciprofloxacin 250mg. The infections eemed to have calmed down, but I now feel anxious about going back to the treatment. (I was getting claustrophobic as well.)
There is another thing I started recently - eating more meat. I read Dr. Kenji Sato's book on TSW where he mentioned that people during topical steroids withdrawal have tendency of Hypoproteinemia (lack of protein). So, I simply started having more meat and soon noticed that my condition has changed a little. There is less bleeding and wounds seems to heal a bit quicker than before. Still a lot of flakes and same amount of oozing, but I am interested where this goes so I will continue my new diet.
