How We Can Help
Scleroderma Treatment Information
Common treatment options for scleroderma include:
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). Available in both over-the-counter and prescription versions, these medications can help to relieve pain and inflammation associated with scleroderma.
- Corticosteroids. Prednisone and similar synthetic hormones can be useful in reducing pain and inflammation.
- Immune suppressants. Physicians use several types of medications to suppress the immune system with the goal of controlling problems of the skin and internal organs in people with scleroderma.
