Collodion babies present unique diagnostic and management challenges. We describe a 2-month-old female with lamellar ichthyosis and prolonged collodion membrane with two constrictive bands of the fingers causing significant erythema, edema, and pain. We suggest prompt release of these constrictive bands with an 11-blade and closely follow up of collodion babies until their membrane has fully desquamated.
