How much do you know about sclerderma? Maybe this is the first time you’ve ever heard of it? Sclerderma is a rare, chronic rheumatic disease that affects about 300,000 Americans, generally women between 30 and 50-years-old.
According to International Scleroderma Network, the term rheumatic disease “refers to a group of conditions characterized by inflammation and/or pain in the muscles, joints, or fibrous tissue. A connective tissue disease is one that affects tissues such as skin, tendons, and cartilage.“
