Ichthyosis vulgaris
Does shaving or epilating worsen the ichthyosis vulgaris? I have mild form of it. And my skin is getting darker on the areas where I have extremely dry skin. What affordable hair removal method should I opt for?

Affordable treatment for hair removal is hair trimming, but Hairs will regrow. Waxing, shaving can cause skin pigmentation also disturbs skin barrier in ichthyosis vulgaris. So best treatment is laser hair removal but it’s expensive.
