Currently, there is no known treatment for ectodermal dysplasia, rapp-hodgkin type (RHS). Instead, treatment seeks to lessen symptoms and either avoid or deal with side effects. A pediatrician, dermatologist, audiologist, ophthalmologist, and surgeon should all periodically check on RHS patients.
- Dental care: Patients with RHS need to practice good preventative dental care, which includes frequent dental appointments, flossing, and tooth brushing. Patients with RHS who lack teeth may benefit from dentures. Dental surgery could be required to fix structural issues.
- Hearing aids: Patients with RHS who suffer from hearing loss may find them helpful. There are three primary types of these battery-powered devices: behind-the-ear, in-the-ear, and in-the-ear canal.
- To find out which kind of hearing aid is appropriate for them, patients should consult their doctor. For hearing loss ranging from mild to severe, a behind-the-ear device is employed. The apparatus is affixed to a plastic ear mold within the outer ear and worn behind the ear.
- For medium to severe hearing loss, in-the-ear hearing aids are worn inside the outer ear. Smaller hearing aids called canal hearing aids fit inside the ear canal of the patient. For mild to moderately severe hearing loss, they are employed.
- Speech-language treatment: Due to the fact that people with RHS frequently develop communication skills more slowly than average, some RHS patients may benefit from speech-language therapy.
- A certified speech-language professional (SLP) works one-on-one, in a small group, or in a classroom with the patient during speech-language therapy to assist the patient to develop speech, language, and communication skills.
