UVA rush hardening for the treatment of solar urticaria.

Author information

  • 1Department of Dermatology, University of Münster, Germany.


Induction of tolerance by subsequent UV exposures is the most effective therapy for solar urticaria; however, it is time-consuming and takes a long time until protection is achieved. Three patients with solar urticaria were exposed to multiple UVA irradiations at 1-hour intervals per day. With this rush hardening regimen, protection was achieved within 3 days.
