Hi Dear

Schamberg's disease is a type of purpura, a purplish discoloration of the skin caused by blood leaking from small vessels near the skin surface. It generally causes no symptoms and needs no treatment. The eruption may persist for years but the pattern of eruption may change. Some people may have mild itching and require treatment with corticosteroid creams or antibiotics. There is no permanent cure for the disease. Some laser treatments are being considered but they are still in the trial phase and none of them can be considered as a definite part of the treatment of the disease. Vitamin C may also help in some cases.

Best..

A biopsy confirmed Schambergs on my lower leg.....there is no pain or itching but it is very unsightly. Does this affect the larger vessels internally as well? And are there any clinical trials?  LAM
