In the milder types of Ichthyosis the main treatment is the regular application of moisturisers or emollients.

Parent should make sure that young children are given help in applying moisturisers, so that they get into the habit of applying them regularly.

The rarer types of Ichthyosis which result in inflamed skin require intensive treatment and nursing care. For older children and adults with these severe types of Ichthyosis, a trial of retinoid (Vitamin A) tablets may be suggested. Retinoids reduce the growth of over-active scaly skin and can improve its appearance. They have little influence on the inflammation or redness of severe inflamed Ichthyosis, so regular blood tests and checks on growth will be needed.
