Hi Everyone!

I haven't posted here in a good year or two I think!

I have had scleroderma for roughly 12 years, I'm now 20. I have morphea/linear scleroderma on my left leg which never spread anywhere else. But 2 weeks ago I noticed a tiny (and it is very small) red piece on my right arm, which since then has turned into a piece of skin (not changing in size) which looks of similar pigment and dry/shiny skin. I'm not sure if it is anything to worry about since my doctor told me there's not much chance of it spreading away from my left leg.
At first I thought I burnt myself, but now I don't think that's the problem.

I was just curious, has anyone experienced what I have in the last 2 weeks?

Thanks for reading,
Louise x

Hi Louise

I can't really answer your question -- just wanted to say hello! Might be me, but I always thought a rash could be a rash -- meaning why couldn't it go elsewhere on the same body? Your doctors comment is interesting. I'm sure someone will chime in soon and let us both know.
Sending good wishes your way!
