Hi, sorry to hear this is upsetting you. what do you mean by calcium lines? do you mean calcinosis? It's unusual to get calcinosis on the face. What other symptoms do you have that lead to a suspicion of scleroderma? Do you know which type of scleroderma you have? Can you describe it please. Thanks

I have swollen fingers with renauds turning them pale and burning hands with pain that comes and goes and pale feet with poor blood flow and red soles that feel cold at times and need double socks

Not sure what you mean by calcium lines? Do you mean calcinosis?

It's very hard to treat, I've had it in my hands and I can feel one in my nose. You really need to see a specialist for any appropriate treatment, but I'm not sure what the answer is I don't think that there's any particular treatment that I've heard of I'm afraid.
