I think it's possible. It is normal for people with scleroderma to have puffy facial skill or to have puffy hands and fingers.

Scleroderma affects the skin and creat a local area in to reddening, swelling, tenderness, itching and pain. The skin changes can be widespread but most common in fingers, face and neck. So face appears like a puffy sore face.

Just because you have a puffy sore face does not mean that you have scleroderma! It could be a variety of things. Do not panic. Diets high in salt can contribute to swelling, as can allergic reactions. Have you been put on any new medications recently? Have you experienced a change in sleeping patterns, diet, or stress level?
