My son has ichthyosis and his skin is starting to look scaley. I was wondering if anyone uses an alpha hydroxy product to exfoliate? I just purchased "kiss my face" peaches and creme moisturizer from GNC for 3.99 but realized it has fragrance listed in the ingrediants so I will try one of their fragrance free as long as the all natural alpha hydroxy acid doesn't have milk derivatives since my son has a milk allergy. Anyone else?

We have to abstain from any sort of alpha hydroxy/acids because my daughter has Netherton's Syndrome. We generally use really mild stuff - Aquaphor, Curel lotion, Eucerin cream, etc. Sometimes I wish I could throw some alpha hydroxy in her scalp and get rid of those scales, though!

Hope it works for you!
