What is scleroderma?

This is a condition that causes skin hardening and can be divided into localized or widespread (systemic scleroderma). It is a disorder where the immune system mistakenly attacks it's own body.

Symptoms of scleroderma

  • Fingers and toes turn from pale blue to purplish-red when in the cold

  • Skin hardening

  • Skin abnormality

  • Skin over my fingers are hardened

  • Fingers and toes are pale white or blue

  • Hands, legs, face or neck become "stuck" or "locked" and unable to move

  • Hands and feet turned pale and blue

  • Fingertip redness

Questions your doctor may ask to check for scleroderma

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose scleroderma

  • Have you ever experienced your fingers and toes turning from blue to purple or red in a cold environment?

  • Do you have hardening of the skin?

  • Do you have any skin problems?

  • Do you feel that your skin is getting harder from fingertip to back of your hand?

  • Do your fingers or toes look pale?

Treatment for scleroderma

Currently, there is no cure for scleroderma. Treatment focuses on controlling the inflammation and scarring in the body. Doctors may prescribe painkillers and anti-itch medicines to control symptoms. Lifestyle changes include maintaining muscle strength through exercise, and ensuring good nutrition via diet changes.
