Hello All. I'm brand new to this forum and hope that it's still active. I've had scleroderma for several years now and have recently developed an ulcer (calcium deposit) in my finger tip - needless to say this is pure agony, and it seems that finger is always being hit against something (again more agony). Do any of you have any suggestions as to how this should be treated? The finger tip is very inflamed and I have opened it several times to relieve the pressure, I have gotten a lot of yellowish pus out of it, but it never fixes the problem. I'm currently on an antibiotic (this is my 2nd week with the antibiotic). I'm concerned as to what might happen when the meds are finished. I'd appreciate any suggestions anyone may have!! Thanks so much
