|Scleroderma and Raynaud's can cause painful ulcers on the fingers or toes, which are known as digital ulcers. Most people try several methods of dealing with finger ulcers before settling on the system that works best for them. But remember, no treatment for finger ulcers should be undertaken without the supervision of a physician — it's very important to treat finger ulcers properly, to prevent complications such as serious infection, gangrene or possible amputation.|
