The only exception was the axillary regions, which displayed lower pH in ichthyotic patients compared with normal patients, probably because of the reduced sweating of these patients. The higher pH in ichthyosis vulgaris was paralleled by an impaired alkali resistance test [64]. More recently, Ohmann and Vahlquist confirmed the elevated surface pH in ichthyosis vulgaris compared with X-linked recessive ichthyosis patients and healthy volunteers. However, the pH gradient showed markedly lower pH values in X-linked recessive ichthyosis and slightly lower values in ichthyosis vulgaris [3].
