After taking two weeks off in order to "pulse" UVC 254nm ultraviolet treatment of skin infection lesions caused by unknown parasite, fungal and/or other organism(s), two treatment sessions have shown more promising results.
A template customized to protect uninfected areas plus UVC specific eye protection utilzed to miminize incidental exposure.
UVC 254nm has been proven to be lethal to all biological, fungal, and organisms, including nematodes and their eggs.
Able to penetrate a skin depth of only 100-200um, this ultraviolet light barely penetrates the top area of the epidermis.
In contrast, UVA penetrates all layers of skin (UVB about half the depth of UVA but is more dangeous in DNA/cell damage).
Back to results - Infection and biofilm killing ability is noteably effective with little side effect once sweetspot of treatment intensity/duration is determined (apparently this varies per patient skin type, medical condition, etc.).
Some initial short term "sunburn" side effects were indicated (redness and very thin layer of "peeling" occurred (much thinner than experienced with a natural sun burn) in areas just on edge of infected areas.
Redness limited to 24 hours with peeling ceasing to occur once sweetspot determined.
Some short term skin wrinkling occurs but disappears within 5 days. Dryness as well, but is only short lived and offset by helping reduce regrowth of biofilm and infection.
This treatment period will extend to three weeks and I will report results then.
Please note this treatment utilizes a specific medical-use device with low-pressure mecury lamp and intensity specific lens with exacting intensity level, and clinical safety precaution standards met.
It is not a retail-purchased UVC lamp which one has to assume would be very unsafe (dangerous).
