    Default Soolantra + Low Level Light Therapy?

    Dermatologist won't see me until 02/2018 and I use Soolantra 2x a day, which warns about making the skin sensitive to light. It doesn't specify whether that's sunlight or ANY wavelength meaning I'm not sure if LLLT+Solantra are compatible with one another. I heard from 1 person on this forum that it's 'okay', but if there's anyone else who knows from first hand experience then please tell!

    Worst case I'll just use both and hope for the best... usually results in a failure, but I ain't got a choice.

    Even though you can't see your derm until February, could you call the office and ask? I've called my derm to ask questions before. They usually respond within 24 hours. When I first got diagnosed and wanted to use LLLT with my Metrogel, I was told to wash, do the light therapy, and then apply the gel after I was done with my LLLT sessions.

    Last time I phoned them the secretary answered and just said to book an appointment. So I think I'm forced to continue on without my derm's consent. C'est la vie.

    Btw, I read the Soolantra warnings inside the box and it doesn't even mention photosensitivity! Maybe he was making it all up?!

    Oh, another person you could ask directly would be the pharmacist...

    There is no problem with it. Light sensitive means at most of the time only UV light which is not good for our skin (if any).
    I used Soolantra and LLTV without any side effects.

    I've also used Soolantra and RLT without any problems.
    Both have been, and continue to be, helpful.
    Soolantra once a day (at night) - in Australia the info we have is to not use it more than once a day.
