I've been googling around and haven't found much written materials about treatments for Steatocystoma Multiplex. Its even hard to find local (Seattle area) doctors who may diagnose the issue. I have a feeling I have it, but would like to get confirmation and suggested treatments if I do have it.
Hi - I was diagnosed over 20 years ago when I was 13-ish. I now live in Seattle and am currently seeking a physician with SM experience, though no luck just yet. In the last day or so I've called several dermatology clinics but no specific resident experience. I'll definitely post a contact should I learn of one. Please let me know if you learn of someone in the area as well.
