Doctors often prescribe phototherapy, the use of ultraviolet light to slow rapidly growing skin cells. You can get a similar effect by spending time in the sun. Talk with your doctor about how much sun exposure you should start with, and how to increase exposure over time. Be sure to protect unaffected skin with sunscreen.
