hi i suffer from ilven, i was born with it.

i think it is genetic as i found a father had it and so did his daughter.

unfortunately as you child grows...so does the ilven as it is part of the skin.

it is not like eczema as it doesnt spread but it just simply gets bigger in proportion to you child's growth (if you know what i mean)

its probly not that bad as it is only a string line thick
