How to use "Ichthyosis" in context?
The term "ichthyosis" is derived from the Greek ikhthus, meaning "fish." Ichthyosis is a hereditary skin disorder characterized by dry, scaly patches on the skin that can evolve into thick, dry patches and even scales. Ichthyosis often affects the body's extremities, including the feet, hands and nails, but is also seen on the face, neck and chest. People with ichthyosis often have a difficult time maintaining warm temperatures, as the dry skin cannot sweat effectively. Ichthyosis also increases the risk for other skin infections, as the scaly patches make it difficult for the skin to protect itself.
