I have got Schamberg's disease since 1997. I've visited many doctors and no one can help me. I try homeopathic, zyrtec, cortison and many others treatments. I don't know what should I do ,because now my legs are in very bad conditions, I have got many injuries with pus in it, I've got swollen legs...and I suffer from this very much... My english it not so good that's why I send a photo with my legs. Doctor, You are my last chance , please help me, and tell me what I can do???
I'm looking forward hearing from You.
Schamberg disease or progressive pigmented purpuric dermatitis is a chronic disease which affects mostly the legs in males. It is a disease in which there is leaky blood vessel walls which allow red blood cells to slip through into the skin. Unfortunately there is no cure for this disease except steroid creams which are available by prescription. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist.
Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
