What Causes: Mycosis Fungoides

It is not entirely known what causes mycosis fungoides. It is thought it can occur because of antigen persistence, over-exposure to carcinogenic substances, and retroviruses. Mycosis fungoides is rare with around only 450 people in the UK, each year, being diagnosed with the condition. It is most common to be diagnosed with this skin condition between the ages of 50 and 70, and most people with the condition enjoy a normal life expectancy.

Your skin specialist may prescribe steroid treatment, and/or light or phototherapy. At Este we are one of the first clinics in the UK to offer Exciplex Light Therapy for mycosis fungoides. This Monochromatic UVB Light Technology can treat autoimmune skin conditions using an effective 308nm wavelength into the epidermis without pain.
