Solar urticaria treatment by inducing tolerance to artificial radiation and natural light

Archives of Dermatology

Abstract

Solar urticaria was treated by means of repeated exposures of the skin to fluorescent lamps or natural sunlight. Repeated exposures over a period of hours induce a state of tolerance in the skin so that urticaria fails to develop. The state of tolerance can be maintained with regular daily exposures, and treatment can lead to complete symptomatic relief. Determination of the action spectrum for urticaria is advisable in order to choose the correct fluorescent lamp for treatment.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
