Welcome to our ichthyosis group and happy you found us. You can access ichthyosis information from our FIRST foundation at:www.firstskinfoundation.org. and can contact our staff at:firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ichthyosis vulgaris is one of the milder types of ichthyosis caused by the deletion of the filaggrin gene. There is a study conducted with researchers at the University of Dundee,Glasgow, University of Washington, and Copenhagen correlating ichthyosis vulgaris, asthma, and eczema. The site is at:www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/39974.php.
Many of the people with vulgaris use the alpha hydroxy creams with urea, lactic, glycollic, and salicyllic acid. Some of the products are Eucerin Plus, Carmol 10 & 20, Dermal Therapy Alpha Hydroxy Cream, Aqua Glycollic, Lachydrin 5% and 12%, Amlactin, LAClotion, Keralyt Gel, Lacticare, Triceram,and Kerol Lotion. Everything is by trial and error Sarah and what works for some will not work as well for others. Welcome to our group and I look forward to more of your posts.
