Scleroderma and Raynaud's can cause painful ulcers on the fingers or toes, which are known as digital ulcers. Most people try several methods of dealing with finger ulcers before settling on the system that works best for them. But remember, no treatment for finger ulcers should be undertaken without the supervision of a physician — it's very important to treat finger ulcers properly, to prevent complications such as serious infection, gangrene or possible amputation.
We want photos of scleroderma symptoms to post on this web site or use in our printed materials to illustrate symptoms such as Morphea, Linear, Sclerodactyly (hardened fingers), Raynaud's, Calcinosis, Telangiectasia (etc). If you have any form of scleroderma or related illnesses and photos of your symptoms that you'd be willing to donate to the ISN Photo Repository, please email JPG files to [email protected].
