Paediatric Dermatology. 2014.

Little research has been done to investigate the efficacy of phototherapy treatment in children. Darné, Leech, and Taylor looked at twenty-nine children using narrowband UVB (NB-UVB) phototherapy. In comparison to children that did not experience phototherapy, the treated population improved by 61% while the untreated population only improved 6%. “NB-UVB is clinically effective and improves quality of life in children with moderate-to-severe eczema.”
