Sjogren's syndrome means that a person develops dry eyes and mouth and often has joint pains. Blood tests that show that a person's immune cells are trying to kill a germ, but doctors can't find a specific germ that causes the symptoms. When doctors cannot find a cause for a disease, they often call it an auto-immune disorder.
People who have Sjogren’s often also suffer from dry skin and find Dermal Therapy's urea moisturizers very effective. Urea attracts moisture into the skin instead of trapping (non) existing moisture like occlusive moisturizers.
