I noticed bald spots on my right side of my head about five years ago and I never did anything about it until about two years later. I went to the dermatologist. They told me I had linear morphea and sent me to a rheumatologist who gave me blood test and MRI and CAT scans.
They say everything is fine but I think it's only gotten worse and feel that nobody wants to help me.
Webmaster's Note: Dominica, you may want to consult a scleroderma expert. Linear morphea is very rare, so most rheumatologists are not well-versed in it.
