Oct 1, 2019 · Narrow-band UV-B phototherapy in Skin Health

The skin on my fingertips tends to be very dry and develop painful cracks, mostly during the colder months of the year but that can happen in warmer months, too. The moisturizers and ointments that the dermatologist recommended don’t help a lot. So she has recommended Narrow-Band UV-B phototherapy to treat the skin on my fingers. The down side is that there is a small risk of developing skin cancer, so I am hesitating to try the phototherapy. Have any of you tried phototherapy for this type of skin problem, and has it helped? Thank you.

Thanks for editing it slightly. To answer your question, no she hasn't but it's something we'll talk about at my next appointment. But for now, she has me taking tylenol and has me using an ankle brace to help reduce the pain.

May 29, 2019 · Reclast Infusions: Side-effects & Recovery time in Bones, Joints & Muscles

In reading through previous discussions of Reclast, I have seen several mentions of arm or joint pain & swelling. But I haven’t seen anyone say how long that problem lasted and what they did to get rid of the swelling. Three weeks ago I had my first Reclast infusion. I had much joint and muscle pain that traveled from one area of the body to another. Most of it has gone now except one foot and ankle still has a lot of pain and swelling. I’m wondering how long this will last and what I can do to get rid of it. My doctor has never seen anyone with a reaction like mine to Reclast.
