Localized scleroderma and zinc: a pilot study. We conclude that high-dose zinc gluconate can therefore be a valuable alternative treatment for localized scleroderma, with good tolerability, although placebo-controlled studies are necessary to confirm our results. Brocard A. Eur J Dermatol. 2010 Feb 2. (PubMed). (Also see: Alternative Therapies and Localized Scleroderma)
