Question: I have Ichthyosis vulgaris. What should I do? I want to have normal life at work.? Is taking Glutathione supplements could help my skin condition?

Answer: I had to look up your skin condition to know what it is. You have lived with this condition and by now should know how to control it and get medical attention when you need it. I also have a skin condition (psoriasis) that covers most of my body. The severity comes and goes, especially with times of great stress or illness and healthy times. Sometimes it is very noticeable and sometimes it is not. Sometimes it itches intensely and other times it just looks bad. I do have a normal life at work but sometimes I have to educate others on my condition so that they understand it is not contagious and there is no cure for it (it just looks bad and itches sometimes.) I smile a lot and go out of my way to be nice to others. People notice and appreciate me.....not my skin. I hope this helps. As far as the supplement you are considering taking, I can't give you any feedback. Maybe you can also post your question in the family section and in the business section to get even more suggestions to help you. Remember, God gave you your skin condition for a reason....look beyond your skin to who you are underneath and see others in the same way! God bless you.
