Dear doctor , After reading about scleroderma on your website I m pretty sure I must be suffering from scleroderma. I ve had these tiny white spots with linear dark brown line at the back of my neck area and over the years it has spread to my arms and chest as well. However, i do not seem to have any other health problems ? Yes I do have a lot of acidity on and off on a regular basis ? the skin on my back has turned very dark brown and the skin has also become very dry and rough ? however, the marks that I ve on my arms and chest are relatively 6yrs. old and the back has had the white sopts with linear brown marks since i ve been 14yrs. old.. and it only seems to get worse . is there a complte treatment for this condition and can any treatment completely eliminate these marks ?

I have as neighbor who has been diagnosed with Scleroderma (sp?). Exactly what is it and what may Ido to help her? She is thin, (Scrawny) and almost crippled up with joint pain, etc. I rally want to be there for her and would like to know more about this disease. I would think it has something to do with skin (thus serma ) but with her it appears to be joints. Scarlett O Casey, Ph.D
