Hi Alice,

Did not know until recent I had calcinosis cutis. My rhematologist pointed out the difference between them and the other problem I have that looks similar. When they crust over and are not open on my hands I use the parrifin baths for them too. I use the parrifin for skin tightening to soften, raynaud's for warmth because it will stay warm and gradually cool off so my raynaud's has no abrupt temperature change to set it off and calcinosis because it feels nice and is healing. Hope that helps.

With gentle thoughts.

A happy heart is good medicine.

Hi, Alice. Here is a link to our medical page on Calcinosis. Under the Treatments section you will find several discussions of various medications which have been tried with varying results.
Warm wishes,
