Can anyone give me some advice on my son's skin condition? He is 8 years old and has had to wear shin guards since he started crawling as his skin is so fragile that it breaks very easily causing him to bleed with any small amount of pressure applied to the skin. I was told that this was due to a psoriasis condition and had to apply a zinc oxide which has not made any difference. He cannot play soccer or any other contact sports - and since we live on a small Caribbean island the medical advice is limited.
Thank you for any information you may have.
