Expert advice for Manaderm Ointment
• Always take psoralen tablets 2 hours before the UV radiation exposure along with food or milk. • Take a plain shower before your treatment to keep your skin clean and dry. • Do not use perfumes, aftershave, deodorants or other cosmetics and toiletries as they make your skin even more sensitive to the UV light causing blistering of your skin. • Never take psoralen more than the dose that has been prescribed as it may cause burning or blistering of your skin after exposure to UV light. • Avoid any other form of artificial UV treatment or relaxation e.g. solarium or sunbathing. • Men should take the required precautions to protect the genital area. • Always wear protective goggles while receiving your light dose in the cabinet. • UV400 standard eye protection glasses and protective skin covering must be worn for 24 hours from time of taking psoralen tablets. • Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant or are breastfeeding. • Should not be given to patients who are allergic to psoralen or any of its ingredients. • Should not be given to children under 14 years of age.
