Ichthyosis Treatment in Homeopathy:
Ichthyosis is a congenital skin disorder, so as to say, a skin disease since birth. It is generally found to be present in several members of the same family having passed on from generation to generation.
The skin of Ichthyosis is dry, rough and scaly resembling a fish skin. Ichtyosis develops due to decreased secretions and abnormal keratinization. Ichthyosis if noticed at birth and is worse during winter, gets better as the weather becomes warmer.
The dryness of ichthyosis is seen primarily on extensor surfaces of the hands and legs and trunk of the body. But slowly the dryness spreads the entire skin.
Since there is poor skin defences and dryness , ichthyosis patients are vulnerable to certain pyodermas, fungal affections and eczemas.
It is very easy to diagnose Ichthyosis because of the characteristic dryness and scaling. But if the onset of the disease is in adults, reticulosis , leprosy and drugs in usage need to be ruled out as the causative factors.
