Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Lukoskin is a herbal medicine and you can continue Lukoskin along with phototherapy. It won’t worsen your disease status and doesn’t cause much side effects.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Dr. Shinas Hussain
