Hello Rachelle,
I see that you are new to the forums, and I wanted to say Welcome!

I am not familiar with DMSO, but I did find this artical in Scleroderma A to Z that covers some info on the subject:

The next article is one that describes one patients treatment with UVA therapy:

I didn't find much info linking vitamin E to Scleroderma, however vitamin E can cause hypertension if taken in excess.

I have UVA treatment weekly. It really seems to help me with my joint pain especially.
