Vulgar Ichthyosis. What is it and how is it avoided?

Ichthyosis Vulgaris is an inherited disorder. In which skin cells accumulate in thick, dry scales. This condition is also known as “fish skin.” It can occur at birth, but it usually appears during childhood. Sometimes mild cases of ichthyosis tend to go unnoticed because it can be confused with very dry skin.

But just as there are mild cases, there are also those that are more serious. In fact, allergic eczema is associated with this condition. And although a cure for ichthyosis has not yet been found, there are treatments that can control the disease. Ichthyosis slows down the natural shedding process of the skin. This causes an excessive and chronic accumulation of protein in the upper layer of the skin (keratin).

Symptoms are usually:

  • Small scales.
  • Flaky and dry skin
  • Scaly scalp.
  • Deep and painful cracks in the skin.
  • White, gray, or brown scales.

Generally, the scales appear in the elbow area and on the lower part of the legs. If you suspect that you may have this disorder, talk to your doctor or a dermatologist. 6 Ichthyosis Vulgaris appears due to a genetic mutation that is inherited from both parents. In the case of inheriting a part, children usually have a mild case of ichthyosis. If it ever develops.

Our recommendation will always be that you visit a specialist for an accurate diagnosis. Remember that there are treatments to control the dryness of the skin and thus avoid the development of severe ichthyosis vulgaris.
