NEW YORK, Aug. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Sjogren's Syndrome is a chronic autoimmune disease in which a person's white blood cells attack their moisture-producing glands. It is estimated that this disease affects as many as 4 million Americans, most of which are women.  Those living with the disease are afflicted with dryness in various parts of their body and typically are also pained by other autoimmune disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus.

Although most people who suffer from this disorder typically exhibit symptoms such as dry mouth or dry eye, there are also cases where various other organs are affected. Sjogren's syndrome can dry out the mucous membranes lining the vulva and vagina, causing painful irritation and intimacy issues.

Without a known cause, it can be difficult to diagnose and treat patients living with Sjogren's syndrome. Blood tests, tear production tests and salivary gland biopsies can be performed to determine if you have the disease; however, treatment options are not as advanced. Because the disease has no cure, patients are only offered ways to relieve the symptoms. 

Dryness can also affect the vulva; the external female genitals. To help alleviate the vulvar dryness and discomfort associated with this dryness, NeoGyn Vulvar Soothing Cream offers a non-medicated, estrogen-free cosmetic cream formulated with Cutaneous Lysate. Without the use of parabens, fragrances or analgesics, NeoGyn helps provide soothing relief and moisture to vulvar skin.
