How can I control Xeroderma?
Q: I have Xeroderma since childhood. Earlier, it was limited only upto my legs but year by year it is spreading all over my body. Nobody in our family has this. I have collected information from many sources which say that it is incurable but can be controlled. I am a software engineer and have to work in AC rooms. How can I control this?
A:It is likely that you have ichthyosis vulgaris. The expression of the disease may have been facilitated by air conditioner. You need to use moisturisers like Elovera cream or Moiste or Moisturex after bath over the body (excluding face). On the face, use Nivea cream etc. Humidifiers can be used in the A/C room if possible. Use glycerine soap or Dove soap for bath.
