Over the summer I went thru 7 weeks of UVB light therapy at the hospital for my eczema which went sooooo well. My skin looked better than ever by the end of it. At the same time, they were supplying me with skin suits (like bandages...) which i was told to use every day. The doctor recommended that I should keep using them once the UVB finished, but said that my GP had to supply the suits. so I have repeatedly been to the GP who refuses to supply them, and the hospital only give me a fewdays worth when i go to appointments. I tried buying them from a pharmacy today, but apparently it will cost me 46 just for one damn suit!!! My skin has is now sore, dry and cracked. There must be someone but me who uses them... Anyone who does,how the hell do you get them?!?!
