Have been using Neotigason for my ichthyosis with very good results for about a year.

However, I do find that my fingernails nails have become somewhat brittle and can split fairly easily. Does anyone have a suggestion I could use to lessen this minor, but annoying side effect?

I had the same thing happen and started taking some Calcium supplements which helped. Also when I get a manicure they have a process they can do on your real nails called "gel nails" they do this on your actual nails and it really helps keep them stronger and enables you to grow them out a bit.
