I am happy you found out ichthyosis bulletin board and hopefully we can help. I am not sure the pain you have is related to ichthyosis, but I would check with your doctor first.Since you are not circumcised, you could be constricted in that area,restricting blood flow and causing pain. After searching under fordyce condition, it doesnt mention any pain or difficulties.It is characterized by small yellow growths that are not transmitted sexually to others.The cause is not known, but seems to be generic in nature.The papules are present at birth, but dont become prevalent until puberty.You can apply tretinoin cream or ointment and it will reverse the affects over time and prevent it from getting worse.Doctors can also use vapor lazerization or liquid nitrogen freezing to remove the growths.
I dont blame you for your concern, and would advise seeking a doctors opinion.Take care Ichty 88 and by for now.
