Abstract

Non-atopic dermatitis is a common inflammatory condition, which is potentially debilitating and can compromise life quality. Polarized ultraviolet-free polychromatic light is used as therapeutic option for the treatment of wound healing and dermatological conditions. It has not yet been tested in the management of non-atopic dermatitis. In this case report, we present a 67-year-old female patient who had suffered with moderate non-atopic dermatitis for the past 20 years, and had undergone multiple treatments during that time without significant improvement or relief from her symptoms. She was treated for six weeks only with daily light therapy applications (10 minutes/area). Our results showed that light therapy offered a significant reduction in erythema of the affected zones with a concomitant reduction in pruritus and dehydration of the skin, without side effects or discomfort.

PlumX Metrics

PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
