Schamberg Disease Makes For Ugly Ankles

About 1 year ago someone ask me how I burned my ankle. I looked down and noticed, what I now know was, Schamberg's disease. It has gotten worse in this past year, possibly because I have been exercising more. My dermatologist gave me some cream that helped tone the color down but more blotches keep coming. I am interested in trying any safe solution to get rid of this unsightly disease. After reading up on the disease tonight I am going to start taking Vitamin C regularly. Not sure how much I should take though. I am only on Crestor high cholesterol medicine but I do take Sulindac quite frequently which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. After reading, just  now,.on this drug it appears it may cause rashes. Not sure if it is related to my issues or not. I think I will stop taking it and see if it helps. Any help is greatly appreciated.

What kind of cream were you taking to reduce the color? I was just recently diagnosed and I'm trying to find ways to hide the coloring.
