My husband has been asking me the effects ichthyosis could have on my son playing sports (anything from football to water skiing). I know that my son has problems with overheating now (though he still is a newborn- I am under the impression that this will probably continue as he ages). Also, is there a worry about getting an infection from swimming in pools or lakes? Since I am a new mom and just beginning to scrap the surface on my knowledge of ichthyosis, I would appreciate any advice you have to offer.
