About X-Linked Ichthyosis

Ichthyosis, X-Linked, also known as x-linked ichthyosis, is related to chondrodysplasia punctata syndrome and multiple sulfatase deficiency. An important gene associated with Ichthyosis, X-Linked is STS (Steroid Sulfatase), and among its related pathways/superpathways are Metabolism and Sphingolipid metabolism. The drug Isotretinoin has been mentioned in the context of this disorder. Affiliated tissues include skin, eye and testis, and related phenotypes are ichthyosis and hyperkeratosis

Major Symptoms of X-Linked Ichthyosis

Ichthyosis, an inherited genetic disorder, is characterized by thick, scaly skin on the arms, legs, and buttocks. It can also affect the scalp, face, and inner thighs. The major symptoms include dry, itchy skin, scaling, and the tendency for the skin to become thicker and darker in areas with increased sweating. In addition, people with Ichthyosis may experience joint pain, muscle weakness, and vision problems.

Suitable Lifestyle for People with X-Linked Ichthyosis

1. Keep the skin clean and moisturized: use mild cleansing products and avoid products containing alcohol, alkaline or irritating ingredients. It is recommended to bathe with warm water and use a moisturizer to keep the skin moisturized.

2. Avoid direct sunlight: Ultraviolet rays in the sun will aggravate the symptoms of X-linked Ichthyosis, so you should avoid going out when the sun is strong, especially in hot summer.

3. Maintain a healthy diet: Patients should avoid foods containing a lot of fat, sugar and salt, such as fried foods, desserts and high-salt foods. Patients are advised to eat more fruits, vegetables, whole grains and protein-rich foods.
