There is no cure for Ichthyosis erythrokeratolysis hiemalis.
Certain medications may be helpful, but effective treatments are not there.
- Medications such as Topical steroids are prescribed to control the condition of the skin. This is anti-inflammatory.
- Chemical compounds such as retinoids can also help. Topical calciprotriol is a form of vitamin D, this is prescribed but it has less effect. Circular lesions occur in patients with ichthyosis erythrokeratolysis hiemalis and so doctors may give systemic steroids that are anti-inflammatory derivatives of cortisol to temporarily resolve this.
- Various measures to control sweating can also help. Some of the patients with ichthyosis erythrokeratolysis hiemalis are treated successfully by photodynamic therapy.
- As per doctors, many symptoms can be improved with age. The condition of ichthyosis erythrokeratolysis hiemalis is more severe in cold weather, so avoid cold temperatures. Some genetic testing is performed, but that is also limited to research laboratories.
