The patient was presented with chronic lesions in his limbs, face and neck due to a Herpes viral infection. The lesions were raised, ulcerative, painful, necrotic and infected.
Phototherapy was done once a day for a week and thereafter every second day using the Tissue Trauma protocol. No other medication or topical ointment was used during this trial.
Phototherapy by improving circulation, speeding up recovery and having a marked pain relieving effect, helped to control the lesions. Without phototherapy and with stress the herpes related lesions would reappear. Phototherapy can be used as a managerial tool in treating Herpes viral infections.
