: My niece was diagnosed with dernatomyositis. This is my first time on a message board and I am not sure what I'm doing. She has several red dots on her face. Can anyone tell me anything about this disease?
yesterday was my first time using a message board and I obviously did not get it right!
My husband had dermatomyositis 16 years ago, was treated with steroids and azothyoprine and eventually made a full recovery. My 29 year old daughter was diagnosed last September and is being treated with steroids and methotrexate. She is managing to work in a sedentary job but everyday living - shopping, housework, bathing etc is difficult. this web site has lots f information but the disease is obviously very variable. keep in touch.
