My father died from systemic scleroderma 4 years ago and his identical twin also died of the condition a few years before my father. My sister who is 37 has been diagnosed with Raynards (which my father also had) and is obsessed with the look of her hands. Her hands have become covered in lines and they have a shiny appearance. She has visited the doctor many times but they have told her there is no test for scleroderma. This is ruining my sister's life and I am unsure how to help her. My sister rarely visited the doctor before being diagnosed with Raynards. If anyone has any advice in how I can help my sister I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you
