Can any one recommend a face cream that I can buy in England? My mouth is getting smaller and face is begining to feel very tight. Any suggestions?


Many thanks,

Dear Lynn,

Unfortunately, no face cream will make a difference in stopping the process of skin hardening in the face. It is extremely important to see a scleroderma expert about this. They need to know about the progression of skin involvement and perhaps they will have some treatments that can allay the further development of fibrosis.

There is a fabulous scleroderma expert center at Royal Free Hospital. See:
Scleroderma Experts and also Prof. Carol Black .

People may suggest brand names of face creams to you by clicking on the button for "Send Me a Private Message" which is in the lower left hand side of your message (since we try to avoid brand names in the main forum to discourage salespersons.) Just keep in mind that no ordinary face cream is going to make a difference in the disease process, and that you need to see your doctor about this development.

Warm Hugs,
