If you're DIYing UV therapy, it's impossible for anyone on here to be able to tell you how long you'll need it for because we don't know what dose you need or what you're currently getting. That's why getting a dermatologist's opinion (they do this in a more controlled setting) would be useful.

I went to my GP several times and he just kept giving me all these different creams that didn't do anything apart from stink and stay on my skin for ages. I asked about seeing a dermatologist and he just said he'd prefer to run through a series of topical treatments before progressing onto anything else. I've been using them for months though, and I'm afraid I've run out of patience - I'll do nearly anything to get this thing off my face! I have thought about the risk of skin cancer, but I won't be using the sunbeds once the psoriasis is gone, I don't care about having a tan and aren't interested in maintaining one so this should only be a temporary thing.
Just don't know how often I'll need to be going and for how long. :/
