Rash on face & itching

Recommended Posts

Please help! I have been diagnosed with scleroderma, not sure which form yet, waiting on test results.

 

I want to know if the rash that is spreading on my face, bumpy, itchy and sometimes sore is part of this disease and also the intense itching. Has anybody had these symptoms?

Hi Eve,

 

Welcome to Sclero Forums!  I'm sure you're curious as to which form you have.

 

Please see your doctor regarding your face rash. It is unlikely to be related to scleroderma, and probably is something very treatable. 

 

I've had lots of face rashes, but none of them due to scleroderma.  A good rule of thumb to follow is to *never* assume that any new symptom is due to scleroderma, but rather see your primary care doctor about it right away. Have them start from scratch to diagnose it, and you'll find many items are obvious, ordinary, and easy to treat -- because with any type of scleroderma, we can all get absolutely anything else on the medical menu. And, in fact, we're probably a bit more likely to acquire anything, than the average person.

 

Let us know how it turns out, too, okay?

Hi Eve,

 

Welcome to these Forums!

 

I'm sorry to hear that you're being diagnosed with scleroderma and are suffering with an unexplained rash on your face. 

 

As Shelley has said, you should go back to your doctor and have them investigate any new symptom you're experiencing. Regarding your scleroderma diagnosis, we do recommend that our members consult a listed scleroderma expert as this bizarre disease does require specialist knowledge and expertise to deal with it.

 

Please do keep posting and let us know how you get on with your scleroderma diagnosis.

 

Kind regards,

Hi Karen,

 

Welcome to these forums!

 

I'm sorry that you're suffering from rosacea and although this condition is not necessarily a feature of scleroderma, I understand that two of the causes can be bacteria ( helicobacter pylori) and stress.

 

It's always a good idea to have any unexplained symptoms checked out by a doctor. 

 

Kind regards,
