Do any kids suffer intestinal difficulties linked to ichthyosis?
We have been dealing with some intestinal bleeding in my 4 year old that is unresolved as of yet, seeing a specialist, it may be food allergy related, that's our next step in testing, but I thought I would send the question out there and see what you all had to say. I would imagine it's not linked, but you never know. [img][/img]

I only know one person that has ichthyosis (LI) and intestinal issues, but I think hers is more age related than ichthyosis related because it is diverticulosis plus some food sensitivities to corn and pork.

I suppose it is possible that they are linked, but I'd be looking at straight food allergies or celiac disease or other more mundane things first, which you are already doing.

Whatever it is, I hope it clears up quickly!

Husband, Nathan - 10, Elliot - 7, Oliver - 4, all affected.
I also have an unaffected daughter, age 8.
