4 doctors agree

In brief: No

The liquid is very difficult to use and it is very easy to burn.
Narrow band uvb or excimer laser are better options. At 4 i prefer excimer laser along with optional Protopic ointment .03 per cent . The parent can hold child and there is no discomfort with laser treatments.
