Homeopathy Heals you Inside Out
Ichthyosis is a skin disorder characterized by persistently dry, thickened, rough and scaly skin. It begins in childhood and, unless successfully treated, persists for life. There is no known cause of ichthyosis but at least one parent is known to have a similar condition. Often there is a concomitant history of thyroid disorders as well. The condition is known to worsen in dry cold weather.
People with ichthyosis have a normal lifespan but not necessarily a normal life as they may need to spend several hours each day caring for their skin. At some point it is possible that patients with severe ichthyosis may experience any or all of the following health complications:
The main goal of treatment is to moisturize and exfoliate. This helps prevent dryness, scaling, cracking and build-up of skin. Although self-help measures won't cure ichthyosis, they may help improve the appearance and feel of damaged skin. These measures may be beneficial:
Petroleum 30C 5 pills once a day for dry skin causing cracks and fissures which increase in winter
Thyroidinum 6c 5 pills twice a day for dry and cracked skin
