Suggest Natural Remedies For Icthyosis

A friend of mine in Thailand has a son with what I strongly suspect is Icthyosis. My friend says he heard of an herbal remedy produced by a company in Connecticut. I have not been able to find anything on this remedy on the net. Do you know of anything that can help. The boy is about 20 and is beginning to have social problems due to the disease.
