Discoloration of Skin

3 posts in this topic

I am a patient who was diagnosed with diffuse scleroderma about a year ago. My skin became tight all over my body. After the skin became tight, the itching came then the discoloration of my skin showed up. I am dark skin person, with large light patches (that look more like vitiligo) on my arms, neck, legs and back.

 

I would like to know if anyone in this forum has the same problem and what did they used or what did the doctor prescribed to clear-up these patches.

Hi Sis,

I do have these patches. My doctors tell me however that it's most likely due to my Plaquenil, but could also be the disease. According to my doctors, they have nothing to offer me in the way of help. They said if I ever stop taking Plaquenil, then some of it would (the part that is due to the Plaquenil) go away.


Warm and gentle hugs,

Hello Sis

 

When I had major skin involvement I had hyperpigmentation but that's the opposite of what you are experiencing! I've not encountered lighter patches, sorry!

 

Take care.
