I was diagnosed with minor morphea about a year ago in 2005. I had the red-brownish skin tone on the side of my right hip and it gradually spread to the lower back to the front of my leg.
This year, I am noticing patches on my shoulder, occasionally itch and circular hard skin texture on my thighs and the back of my leg.
It has been very painful emotionally watching it just takes over my body with no recourse to find a cure. I have tried to keep myself together, and ignore that it is there but still know what is new on my skin.
My dermatologist has not found a cure or a medicine to slow the new skin disorder. I only hope that it will slow down.
