[Modification of skin sensitivity to selective UV-B (SUP) by water baths and various saline solutions--effect of various concentrations, duration of effect].

Abstract

The skin sensitivity against selected UV-B (SUP) can be improved by baths in water or in salt solutions, leading to an average economizing of the radiation dose of about 50%. The best effect is achieved by a 0.3% salt bath (0.5 kg common salt per bath-tub). As the effect lasts for two hours, balneophototherapy may be carried out not only in hospitals but in practices, as well.
