We are aware that some patients with ichthyosis are experiencing difficulties with their GP reducing, or stopping prescriptions of emollients including bath and shower products. For some members this also extends to some silk garments.

Our Medical Advisory Board have written letters that you may print off and take to your GP asking them to prescribe the items you need to care for your ichthyosis. You can access these letters via the links below.
