It's An Autoimmune Disorder
I wrote a little about this in a blog a couple weeks ago. But I thought that maybe I'd get more responses if I put it here.
I don't know much about this disorder--other than it's an autoimmune thing. The only symptom is a "bruise" on my leg that hasn't gone away in a whole year. I went to the dermatologist and was told that it's almost as if a part of my body is rejecting itself (like sometimes happens after an organ transplant). I've never heard of such a thing. Has anyone else? He said that in 90% of cases, a topical steroid cream solves the problem, but in 10% it becomes systemic. He said that if the cream doesn't work, I'll have to have a biopsy. That word scares me. The cream hasn't helped at all in two weeks, and I'm getting worried.
