Hello everyone, I have Systemic Scleroderma for many years. In additional to that I also have Calcinosis Cutis. I had many surgeries over the years due to infections I get from this calcinosis cutis. They kind of spread all over my body, my hips, knee, index finger and thump. I need help from anyone who suffered from the same painful calcinosis to please give some advises on what has help them to cope with?


Much love, Alice

Dear Sam,

Thank you for your respond, I appreciate. I have so much calcinosis cutis and get infections most the time. I have a big one on my hips and it just keep on growing. I have been on so many medications, nothing has worked. How is your appealing with SSDI went?

Warm regards

Alice
