  • My daughter has been diagnosed with incontinentia pigmenti. My questions are: Is there a life span on someone who has IP? Does IP make the child have weight issues (my daughter is underweight for her age)? Does IP affect any areas inside the body, such as internal organs? She looks like her father, does this mean she may have inherited the condition from him?
