Has anyone used an infrared sauna for this type of ichthyosis? If so what were the resluts. Is it dangerous for someone who doesn't sweat?

I've tried saunas before, but I get really red and overheated after about 5 minutes and have to get out. Then it takes me FOREVER to get back to normal, and I wind up with a headache the next day. I won't do it again!

The purpose of saunas is to make you sweat--supposedly to help your body rid itself of toxins. So for someone who doesn't sweat, it's not a good thing!

Thank you for your response. But I am looking specifically for infrared sauna, not just a regular sauna. Does any one have exprience with the infrared?

Now, admittedly I have never tried the infrared sauna however after doing some research I've discovered that it's basically the same principle as a regular one only with slightly lower temps (110 degrees as opposed to 190). As mystique said the purpose of saunas is to sweat away toxins and since I can't sweat I chose to stay away from them...so I can only say that I personally wouldn't recommend them to anyone with Lamellar.

Just my opinion, since you asked.
