Just a quick question. I have Linear Scleroderma on my left leg, and unfortunately I wasn't very careful yesterday and my shin got badly burnt, it's showing up some tiny red dots beneath the skin surface. I'm just wondering if anybody knows of any good creams to put on it, or should I just keep using the after sun? I tried a creme but I'm not sure if it would help soothe it at all.

I'm usually so careful when on holidays with my leg, but living in Ireland, i just forgot I'd burn easily on that section of leg with the sun here! :(

Hi Louise,


It might be too late to try it, but I have been told that using one of the over the counter NSAID cremes or gels (something with aspirin, ibuprofen, acetaminophen, or the like in it) might help.


In my nagging mother role, I'll remind you that when you should always use sun protection when you are out, especially on areas you know to be extra susceptible to burning. :)
