Phototherapy treatment in patients with atopic dermatitis has been shown to be effective, however there is not much literature supporting this. Clayton, Clark, Turner, et al. conducted a retrospective study of children who had received phototherapeutic care for atopic dermatitis. Based on this review, the authors found that the light treatments were effective in treating adolescents with severe eczema.
