Pigmentation?

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone has had any pigmentation on their face? Im starting to get brown darking and blotchy darking on my forehead? Does anyone else have this problem?

 

Thanks, Jenny

Hi Jenny,

 

Yes I do. My rheumatologist told me it was due to either the connective tissue disease itself, or could be the plaquenil. I use a self tanner to try and even out my blotchiness. I also have found a foundation that covers it nicely. If you want to know the name of it you can send me a private message.


Warm and gentle hugs,

I do have that on my back (they call it a saucer and cup), my sides, and stomach. I have noticed a very small one on my wrist.. although I am not 100% sure the one on my wrist is scleroderma. .

I have the splotch brown spots on my face too. I have had them for a while. And there are more popping up. I didn't give them much thought as being connected to scleroderma. I thought they were just "age spots" :rolleyes:


Peace :)

Hi, Jenny!

 

I have a dark spot on the right side of my face. It's a light brown and not terribly obvious. My makeup does a pretty good job of evening things out and hiding it.

Hi Sweet,

 

Thanks for your reply! If you have the name of the cover up I would love to have you PM it to me.. I have just tried one that is working quite well.

 

Thanks for your help! They told me that the sun will make the browning worse?

Hi Sweet,

 

What I use is a product that contains all herbs and botanicals. If you are interested let me know, and I will send you a PM. I haven't showed my rheumatologist the product yet but I will be this tuesday, so I will let you know hat he says. Do you know if your product is safe for sclero patients?

 

Thanks Jenny
