I have a question for all scleroderma fellow posters. I was tested all last summer and fall for lupus with no postive proof. Then come Jan of this year I had my first appointment with a rhuemy doctor that told me I had scleroderma, (CREST). Been treated since. Well I developed a patch of a rash on my left arm which itches and I have had it for about a month and a half, I went to the dermatoligist and he took a look and said, it is a lupus rash, mentioned dermatotois spelled wrong. Prescribed a $80.00 cream for it, and said I could do a blood test but it is going to come bac k ANA postive so he said why? Well, fast forward to a week later and now I have a patch on my left cheek that keeps getting bigger and itches also. It does have a hard skin feeling in the middle of the patch, does this sound like the scleroderma? I have red lines and dots in weird patterns on the same cheek and have for about three years and they are spreading too. Now I think, if the new spot does not go away which is now about the size of a quarter, should I go to the dermatolgist or the rheumy doctor? I just get very confussed about who to go to for what. Also does anybody know of any group or organization who would help with drug costs, I am now putting out around 800.00 per month for my drugs, not including what my husband takes, and then they prescribed a drug for my colitis which is 900.00 a month which I just can not afford to take, is there any help for us that anybody knows of? Sorry so long. Thanks for any help.
