Hi, My name is Ian Jones and I am a 24 year old male with ichthyosis. I have scaling on the legs, back, arms, face and scalp to varing degrees. It is worst during the winter time. Alpha hydroxy acids work great for my body (legs, arms, back, and also scalp). This is however a problem with my face where it tends to make my face a light red. I have tried different concentrations and pH levels but they all have the same effect. I must admit I have not tried every type of acid but someone told me they are all the same. I am wondering if this is how other people feel or if it is true. I would like to find a product that will remove the scaling on the face without turning my face red. Any help would be appreciated. thanks Ian
