Ichthyosis Vulgaris Treatment Option and Causes
About Ichthyosis Vulgaris
According to dermatologists and researchers, ichthyosis vulgaris is a mild to severe, inherited, skin condition. It causes dry, dead skin cells to accumulate in patches on the surface of your skin. It’s also known to dermatologists as “fish scale disease.” That's because the dead skin accumulates in a similar pattern to a fish’s scales. It’s sometimes associated with other skin diseases like eczema. The patches of dry skin typically appear on the elbows and lower legs, most often affecting the shins in thick, dark segments. In severe cases, Ichthyosis Vulgaris may also cause deep, painful cracks to develop on the soles of your feet or palms of your hands. Once the skin barrier is broken by cracks and scales, the skin can become infected by bacteria. The skin is especially prone to Staphylococcus Aureus, which commonly lives on the skin. These infections will more seriously affect your health and require their own treatments.
To be rid of these painful symptoms you need a medical grade solution. You need something that quickly soothes skin, prevents itching, kills bacteria and calms the inflammation.

CAUSES OF ICHTHYOSIS VULGARIS
Dermatologists say that ichthyosis vulgaris is a genetically inherited disease. It can be passed on to children from one or more parents via a genetic mutation. If only one parent carries the mutated gene, the condition will likely be mild in the child. Bubut, if a child inherited the gene from both parents, they will more likely develop a severe case of ichthyosis vulgaris. For most children with a mutated ichthyosis vulgaris gene, their skin will usually look clear and healthy when they’re born. But they will develop scaly skin during the first few years after birth.
There is a non-genetic version of ichthyosis vulgaris called acquired ichthyosis. This condition usually develops as a secondary symptomatic disease. Cancer, thyroid disease, and HIV/AIDS can all cause acquired ichthyosis. This is part of the reason why it’s important to get clinically diagnosed by a dermatologist if you ever start experiencing scaly skin, especially as an adult. It may be a sign of a much worse, underlying health condition.
SYMPTOMS OF ICHTHYOSIS VULGARIS
Ichthyosis vulgaris slows a patient's natural ability to shed old or excessive skin cells. This makes it the easiest, clinical symptom to identify is chronic, skin tissue build-up. But, there are other symptoms associated with ichthyosis vulgaris, according to dermatologists.
