To help support you and the medical professionals who care for you during non related dermatology appointments and hospital admissions, we have a Medical Alert Card. Being a rare condition, ichthyosis is not commonly known, even within the medical community.
The alert card is business card sized, so it’s easy to print out and keep in your wallet, purse or handbag!
You can complete the cards with your details and hand them to healthcare professionals so they have key information to hand about you and your ichthyosis, during an emergency or hospital admission.
The cards also signpost to the ISG and our website, allowing healthcare professionals access to more detailed information about the different types of ichthyosis should they need it.
