In brief: Only if very severe

A person would only need phototherapy for atopic dermatitis if all the other treatments tried had failed to bring about improvement in the condition.
These include antihistamines, topical anti-inflammatory creams, excellent skin hydration and searches for triggers that can be treated with avoidance or immunotherapy.
