Hi Guys! I'm Louise and I am 18 years old. I have ichthyosis all my life but only recently have the Doctors started trying to investigate it. I have had a skin biopsy to see what kind of Ichthyosis I have and soon will be starting a course of PUVA light therapy! I don't know anyone else with this skin complaint and am glad to have found this website. This is the forst time i have been told anything about ichthyosis as before it was treated as eczema. I would appreciate anyone emailing me to talk over commom probelms and other subjects. My email address is look forward to hearing from you all soon. Keep Smiling, Louise xxx

Hello Louise,
My name is Lisa and my son Jake (5 years old) has Nethertons Syndrome Ichthyosis. We are also in Britain and I just wanted to let you know that we have an Ichthyosis Support Group over here. We have had a couple of get togethers where around 40 families affected with ichthyosis all met up, we also have a newsletter. If you would like to get in touch the national contact is a lady called Pamelia Catlyn-Ranger and her telephone no. is 0207 461 9034. Hope this can be of some use to you, if I can help in any way please dont hesitate to email me.

Best regards

Hi Lu!
My name is Maria and i have Nethertons Syndrome. I have started to take UVA/UVB light treatments since september 2003 and I have can see an improval in my skin since then. My skin is a lot better now than the winters before, with one exception, the face. It's better but not as good as the rest of the body. So I hope that you will be better whith your light treatments as well. Write if you like, I'll answer any kind of questions you have. Take care /Maria

My name is Heather, i'm 19 from Ontario Canada. I was born with Nethertons Syndrome and really don't know much about it. I do get sick a few times a years, where it often gets so bad that its hard to get around and do my day to day things. I've tried so many medications, and creams during those times and notting works, infact it get wrost.I was hoping to meet some other people with the same condition or one like it that can relate to my life style, and can help eachother out. I often feel like i'm the only one out there like this and would love to meet other people. you can e-mail me at
