Just wondering if there was a connection at all with iron deposits in the brain and the venous blockages (CCSVI) that might be linked or cause this problem in someone with MS.

It starts out like little blisters and then itches real bad, the skin is very fragile and if the blisters break, it spreads, turns into little ulcers, then eventually scars over with tough skin something like a callous...the sun does help, sometimes more than others...but from doing some research on my own, I have concluded that it IS, I believe, tied somehow to the CCSVI...unfortunately, I can't put my hands on my research that led me to that conclusion, at the moment, nor can I clearly remember my reasoning, deductions, etc. but when I find it, I'll post it. My dermotologist has given me Minocycline and it seems to be helping more than anything else has so far...
