As explained by Doctor Kevin Berman from the Atlanta Center for Dermatologic Disease, "Ichthyosis vulgaris is one of the most common of the inherited skin disorders. It may begin in early childhood, before age 4. The condition is inherited in an autosomal dominant pattern. That means you only need to get the abnormal gene from one parent in order for you to inherit the disease." And that also means my little toddler is definitely at risk of getting this same skin condition. Thank you, Doctor Google.
