Hi gang!
It seems I can't stop posting at the moment,I must be lonely!
I have a wound on the top of my poor foot!It appeared after a nasty mosquito bite in Australia,and has been there for nearly 5 months.It is horribly deep and so painful.And now a type of fungal skin infection is spreading around it over the top of my foot.Wow I'm looking good!
My Doctor is lovely but a little lost with Scleroderma and gave me antibiotic cream.
I do see the scleroderma unit on thursday at the Royal Free in London,but in the meantime I wondered what you all do with wounds that won't heal because of raynauds and hard skin.
I have a hot date on Wednesday and I'm thinking perhaps I won't wear sexy heels this time ;)
love to you all

You have been through a lot lately, even though it was fun. I will be the last person to tell you to slow down, but I think you are on the right track in leaving the sexy heels in the closet for the time being. I am anxious to hear how your appointment at the Royal goes. Here is a recent thread on the subject of wound healing which you may find interesting.
Warm wishes,
