I am 32 now, at the age of 27 ichthyosis vulgaris spread all over my body including my face. I met several doctors who prescribed lotions and moisturizers but they had no power over this disease. I almost started planning for suicide, because I lost everything because of this disease which has no cure. I was suggested to meet a homeopathy doctor, since I had no option I took homeopathy medicine. Three years of medicine, and believe me, I am cured. It works. Good luck.

I have ichthyosis vulgaris, with black patches all over my body, and it is more on my legs. I don't sweat as a result, and during summer I go crazy. It also added to the anxiety and I started getting severe muscle spasms going from shoulder to neck and jaw and my ears. I thought the ear pain was independent of the muscle spasms and went to an ENT specialist. The ENT prescribed Clogen G cream to apply near the ears; the same gave some relief and I started applying the same on my shoulder as well, and it cured the skin dryness around the shoulder. I think what the cream contains was a break through to find a cure. It has been 7 days since I used, so far no issues, hope this gives some hope.

I have used this product around 1 year back and I have seen awesome results after using this SR lotion for ichthyosis vulgaris. I have used several products and not even a single product cured my issue and I have spent thousands of amount on moisturizers and doctors for resolution, but nothing worked. Only after using this SR lotion, within 10 days' time I have seen a lot of difference and my skin became normal. After I completed 2 bottles my condition came to normal, and looks like normal skin. But after 1 year again it is appearing, so I am planning to order it again. I am not sure if every year I have to use this product or only once, because I have used 1 year back and past 9 months my skin looked very good but now the layers are appearing. So, I am planning to order it again.

I am a boy, 21 years old. I had a dream to be an athlete, I had a dream to serve my country as a soldier, but everything has been dismissed with the ichthyosis vulgaris I am facing today. I went for the medical test, they told me to use some body lotion and cream, I have used, and it didn't have any effect at all. When I go to school, my friends tease me all the time, and people look like I am not from this world. It irritates me and sometimes I feel very bad about myself. Writing this comment I have tears coming out from my eyes. I don't know who will help me. Sometimes I think of ending my life. Because, having a bad skin, I can't wear a half t-shirt.

Many dermatologists told me there was no cure for ichthyosis vulgaris which I had on my legs. I tried every lotion and abrasive on the market and nothing helped. Then this past summer (2017) I came upon a jar of Udderly Smooth udder cream. I used it and had almost immediate positive results. I no longer have this disfiguring condition and am wearing shorts and skirts again. Udderly Smooth udder cream is inexpensive and is available on Amazon. Try it!
