My husband and sister in law both suffer from this skin condition is there any treatment available or someone in the north west area that could help?

Re: Darius

Hi there,
Darier's disease is a genetic skin condition, so unfortunately can't be cured yet, but there really is a lot that can be done. You need a referral to Dermatology department. Most big hospitals will have at least a few patients with Darier's and some big hospitals have a specialist genetic dermatology clinic.

I have quite a lot of experience with genetic skin disease and I've found that many of my patients have really benefitted from social media - Facebook groups etc, so it's worth searching one out.

I would really encourage your husband and sister in law to seek medical attention. Depending on where you are in the NW, your best bet is a big teaching hospital Derm department. I'm afraid I'm London based, but there are genetic derm clinics at Guy's and at the Royal London.

I hope that helps and good luck!
