In brief: Possibly

Pingueculitis is inflammation of a conjunctival lesion and scleroderma is an autoimmune inflammatory disease.
It is possible that scleroderma may cause pingueculitis but it is not a common finding of the disease.

In brief: Unlikely

Major cause for pingueculitis is not known but it is found that those people who are exposed to sun, wind, dust and dry climate for a longer time are more vulnerable to this condition.
Consult with ophthalmologist for more details about this condition.
