Many thanks for all your kind, sweet messages of reassurance. I will quit worrying about my little granddaughter's elbows. I have probably been transferring worries about myself to her. Trudy in Texas
Hi all I am new here. It looks like I have some form of scleroderma with lung involvement, but I won't have definitive diagnoses until next week. I am not going to worry about it until then. But, meanwhile, I am concerned about my fair-haired, six-year-old granddaughter who has noticeably dry,rough skin, particularly on her elbows and heels. I am terrified about the possibility of this being a sign of scleroderma. Am I overreacting?
