In brief: No cure for it

Ichthyosis is a heterogeneous family of at least 28 generalized, mostly genetic skin disorders.
All types of ichthyosis have dry, thickened, scaly or flaky skin. In many types there is cracked skin. Which is said to resemble the scales on a fish.There's no known cure for ichthyosis, so the goal of treatment is to manage the condition. Some time they have eye involments.
