My 7 month old was diagnosed with Ich a few months ago. At birth she just had really dry skin, no collodion membrane. Our dermatologist did a skin biopsy last week to see if my daughter has Ich Vulgaris, but the test confirmed that she doesn't. We're not planning on doing any genetic testing anytime in the near future, but we would eventually like to know what we're dealing with as we would like to have more children. The derm doesn't really think that my daughter has CIE since she wasn't born with a collodion membrane.
Has anyone been diagnosed with CIE that also didn't have a collodion membrane at birth?
