Getting Diagnosed

Scleroderma isn’t an easy disease to diagnose, because it doesn’t always show identifiable symptoms; it can look like something else; or the skin can get thick really fast. But a doctor will look at your family history, take a blood test, skin grafts and a physical exam to determine if you have the disease.
