My husband has ich, but a different type more like EHK. He uses the spray type, but it burns like crazy if he has peeling like when using Tazorac. Then he switches to the cream stuff.
Type is hit or miss. Some sting more than others. It wouldn't hurt him to try it. He'll know right away if it stings or not.
Ichthyosis-en-Confetti Type 2
Husband, Nathan - 10, Elliot - 7, Oliver - 4, all affected.
I also have an unaffected daughter, age 8.
