Hi Everyone,
I recently watched a story on a little girl who suffered severe eczema. Her mother took her to Avene Hydrotherapy Centre in the south of France for treatment. It really did wonders for her, though I don't know how long the benefits will last.
Has anyone tried this place? A quick google search of this place and Ichthyosis sufferers brought up a few positive results, though again, not sure how long the benefits last.
Would be interested to hear from anyone that knows about this place.
My name is Cathy and my daughter Sophie 4 years has Lamellar Ichthyosis

I don't know anything about the center, but Avene Trixera products have been miraculous for my son. Warning: they are not cheap! But we've been using them for almost a year and they've made quite a difference for him. We use Avene Trixera Emollient Bath twice a day - fill up the tub with lukewarm water and dilute 1/2 a capful - and have him sit in it for three minutes, no more. Then pull him out, peel off any skin that's ready to come off, pat him dry and slather on Avene Trixera Cream. His skin has come a long way since we started doing this.
