  • Area of skin that is rough and hard

  • Skin hardening

  • Lumps under the skin

  • Skin problem on the feet, beyond the ankle

Your doctor may ask these questions to check for this disease:

  • Do you have dry or rough skin?

  • Do you have skin hardening?

  • Do you have any lumps under your skin?
