I have a friend with very strange skin type. When I asked him why he looks like that, he tried to explain that to me. Unfortunately, I did not understand much, which is why I need your opinion. He said he suffers of ichthyosis, which is described as skin disorder. Now I want you to explain me what causes ichthyosis, so I would appreciate anything you could tell me.
