Hi, I've just discovered I am a carrier for X-linked Ichthyosis. As we are planning children, I am wondering what expereinces people have had with this condition. We are still waiting for genetic counselling. Thanks

To update I do now have an XLI baby. It is a manageable condition and there is support out there,

If you can get creams with lactic acid it helps clear it up. Keep moisturising to keep on top of the dryness. Salt baths can also help remove the scales.
