Can calcium deposits form in the tongue? My friend has little hard rocks coming out of the side and tip of the tongue.

??, calculus?: I have never seen or heard of calcium deposits forming in the tongue. Two thoughts come to mind. The less likely one is small calculi coming from the ducts of the submandibular salivary gland. The more likely scenario is pieces of calculus dislodging from the teeth. Have your friend see a dentist to find out which one it is. ...Read more

What can take away the pain from calcium deposits in and under the skin?

Find the cause.: If these deposits are painful, they must have been there awhile. Your first priority should be to find out why they are present in the first place. A significant underlying disease, such as scleroderma, could be causing them. Once you find the cause, you can then talk about your treatment options. ...Read more

Calcium deposit???: On wound? I'm afraid I don't know what you mean by this. Neosporin is an antibiotic that can help prevent infection in wounds, but I don't think that it has any effect on calcium, and I can't think what is meant by calcium deposit on wound? Did you perhaps mean a "scab" (which is not calcium, but coagulated serum and dead cells)? That is a good biologic dressing and should not be removed. ...Read more

Uncommon: One must distinguish calcium deposits in the liver (not common) from deposits in the blood vessels going into the liver (rare), or calcium in the gallbladder (common). Depending on the clinical scenario, deposits in the liver can occur in certain infections and tumors. Diabetes and kidney failure are risks for calcium in the vessels, while gallstones often contain calcium. ...Read more

Just because I have some calcium deposits on the skin, it doesn't necessarily mean I have Scleroderma...or does it? They're not clusters.

Just because I have some calcium deposits on the skin, it doesn't necessarily mean I have Scleroderma...or does it? They're not clusters.

It does not: You are right. There is a clear set of criteria to confirm the diagnosis of scleroderma. Until then is only suspected/ possible/ likely. A rheumatologist should be able to confirm or rule it out based on symptoms, history, physical exam and review of diagnostic data. ...Read more
