Meet Daniel Maples. This brave 3-year-old has a rare condition called lamellar ichthyosis, causing his skin to become thickened and cracked.
Daniel’s skin sheds six times faster than normal, leaving a thick build up underneath the top layer.
Daniel’s father, Pickfords Home Moving Consultant Steve Maples, has to smother Daniel in medical jelly every four hours to stop his delicate skin from cracking.
Steve will be taking part in ‘Itchthycyclotron’ next month to raise money for the Ichthyosis Support Group, dedicated to providing support for affected families and funding medical research to help fight the condition.
