A 21-year-old member asked:

Is sarcoidosis more prevalent among people of certain occupations?

Dr. Marci Dietrich

Sarcoidosis: Dear js sarcoidosis is found most commonly among the health care professions and teachers. Ethnicity also seems to be a factor in that those of african and hispanic origin make up about 50% of those with this disease. Northern europeans also make up for a moderately large percent. It is not considered contagious, but a sarcoid patient cannot be a donor of organs as it has been transmitted.

Not likely: If your sarcoid is flared up causing lung impairment you may have difficulty exerting yourself. Other than shortness of breath or fatigue i would not expect much impact.
Dr. George Valdez
Specializes in Family Medicine
Sarcoid can affect skin at any part, and any organ system, so it is possible, but lung impairment would be the most likely, if any, impairment.

A 31-year-old member asked:

What is the difference between chillblains and raynaud's disease?

3 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Robert Kwok
Pediatrics 33 years experience
Care is the same: The prevention and treatment of chilblains (pernio, perniosis) and raynaud's are similar. Chilblains are itchy, tender spots or bumps, with a reddish or purplish color. The blood vessels in chilblains are damaged (vasculitis). The cause is cold-damage to the tissue (basically getting frostbite on a spot of skin), so chilblains happens in cold weather or very cold water exposure.
