My son went twice a week for 4 months. We were able to use a weaker steroid ointment whilst he had treatment, he still required creaming but the eczema was better and itch was reduced loads as well. Unfortunately skin flared up as soon as he stopped going.

I think there might be something to it. I've noticed that by far more people on this site are from up north, Canada, UK etc.

Yes, as recommended by my dermatologist. I’ve been having UVB 1-2 a week for almost a year. My eczema has definitely improved but requires application of ointment and UVB treatment to manage my condition.
