8 Scleroderma-Related Conditions You Should Look Out For


8 – Sjögren Syndrome


Sjögren syndrome usually presents itself as a decrease in secretions of the tear and salivary glands, core to the lubrication of the mouth and eyes.

However, this lack of secretions can also involve other areas of the body, such as the vagina.

The unusual dryness may lead to serious irritation and inflammation of the eyes, difficulty  in speaking and swallowing, a reduced sense of taste, or even a pronounced increase in tooth decay and cavities.
