Darier's Disease

I was wondering if anyone has found anything that cures Darier's Disease. Using vitamin A keeps it under control, but my moms is really bad and it never completely goes away.

Alas, there is no cure for Darier's Disease, the only treatment seems to be with retinoids and surgical treatments such as dermabrasion. Personally I have found a regimen of emollients works for me. Vaseline is the cheapest route and works well, but has drawbacks. Personally I have found coconut oil mixed with cocoa butter works well, melt down bother and mix togetherm let solidify again for use. it is non painful to use compared to most lotions, drawbacks is that it can stain clothes as it is an oil. shea butter has been working for me also.
