to Elaine: I also have linear scleroderma. I have had it for about 10 years. I have it located on my leg. You don't hear much about linear scleroderma. Where does he have his located? And do have an idea how he got it? I believe I got it from a tick at my uncle's ranch during hunting season-but the doctor's don't think so. If I can help out on how to help the appearance or other info. let me know.
