Hello Jamie, JDS, and Shandra
At our ichthyosis conference in Atlanta, Dr. Philip Fleckman touched on the relationship of ichthyosis vulgaris, asthma, and eczema. Doctors and researchers at the University of Dundee, University of Washington, and Copenhagen did extensive research in finding these characteristics. They also found a lessened amount of an enzyme called profilaggrin in ichthyosis vulgaris people.On this board, there is the website listed for this breakthrough study.When I find it, I will email it to you.
Thanks for your post.
