26 FebTreating Porokeratosis

Porokeratosis is a very popular skin condition. It had been known to affect both male and female. This had increased its popularity and the number of people it had affected. It had also been found to be possible in both the old and the young. But generally, it had been discovered that women are more susceptible to this skin situation.  Another thing worthy of note about this skin condition is that it can be seen on several parts of the body including the feet. It is not contagious; neither is it painful, but treatment must be sought for it on time. If you do not seek for treatment for the porokeratosis on time, you may find it difficult to put things in order again.


Try topical treatment

Several methods are available for treating porokeratosis. One of such method involves the application of topical solutions. You will never need to take any oral drug at all and the skin condition will be removed from your skin with consistent application of the topical treatment method.  One of such topical methods that can be used for treating this skin condition includes hypericin. This is especially designed treatment method. It contains dye that is photoactive. The product is so active against the skin condition and you can be sure of its complete removal after some days of application. You should apply the hypericin consistently before you can expect it to work against porokeratosis.

Photodynamic therapy is a very reliable way of treating this skin condition.  You will never have to bother about the skin condition again after applying this treatment method for some days. Porokeratosis is strongly linked with the UV ray form the sun and this makes the photodynamic therapy the best treatment method that can be relied upon for the complete removal of the skin condition.

Its reliability

Several researches are still being conducted on how effective the photodynamic therapy is against porokeratosis. But those who had made use of it are testifying to its complete reliability. There seems to be no perfect solution to anything on earth. Because of this, no one should expect the application of this photodynamic therapy to be completely helpful in treating this condition. Many patients have been treated through this therapy and each of them seems to have very good testimony about how effective the treatment method can be against porokeratosis. This treatment method can only be applied at the hospital and it may be somewhat expensive.
