I have had Scleroderma for about 2 years. I recently noticed the roof of my mouth is turning yellow in the back soft palate area. This is not thrush. It is just the skin looks yellowish. Is this related to the Scleroderma or something new?

Sorry about this new problem you are having. I've never heard of it before. Have you contacted your provider? Always a good idea. Perhaps someone else here on the forums has had experience with this.... hang tight.

Mine is that way too I had noticed it last year. Really don't think its anything. Something you may want to bring up when you see the dentist to make sure though. Sam

Dear AK,

If I were you, and this condition has lasted more than a week, I would see a doctor, preferably an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) doctor.

Here is a link to photos of mouth symptoms: Oral (Throat) Pictures which is listed on our main Dental Involvement page. You can also search under terms like "discolored palate"...but there is no way to diagnose or treat anything over the Internet, so you really must see a doctor.
Warm Hugs,

The most important thing in the world to know about scleroderma is sclero.org.

I think I know what you are talking about. When I first got MCTD, I noticed this yellowish color on the roof of my mouth appear. Never really did anything just looked different. Susie54
