Have you tried any other stronger cream. Please discuss with your doctor. The other treatments options are listed below ... can't say which one will work best for you to clear your leg. You may need to try it out and see.
Treatment of Lamellar ichthyosis
Moisturizers containing medicines such as urea, ammonium lactate, or other alpha-hydroxy acids may help shed dead skin layers. Also, retinoid medications such as tazarotene may be applied to the skin.
