Scleroderma Skin Care



According to the Scleroderma Research Foundation, the build-up of collagen in the skin can affect the normal functioning of sweat and oil glands, leaving the skin dry and tight.

Moisturize frequently with oil-based creams or lotions, especially after washing hands or bathing.


  • Avoid harsh soaps and extreme water temperatures when washing and bathing.
  • Use humidifiers to help keep skin soft with moist air.
  • Always protect your skin against the outside elements by wearing protective clothing and sunscreen.
  • Regular exercise will help circulation.
  • You may want to consider bathing less if your skin gets seriously dry.
