Systematic progressive scleroderma


My aunt is suffering from systematic scleroderma, she started taking steroids for her treatment. The steriods are reacting badly on his body, her body has changed her face is swelling, her skin colour is now blue. The doctors say there is no cure for this disease.

Doc can you give me more information on this disease, and clinics that specialises with this disease in and around Free State (Harrismith and Betlhem) and Gauteng areas.

You assistance will be appreciated.
