After that the morphea started to spread up the left side of her body, towards her back and down her left leg. The vitiligo started at the same time.
I am not overly concerned about the vitiligo at present, but I would like to know if anyone else has the morphea and vitiligo together? Although the Morphea has improved, it still seems to be active.
My daughter is now nine years old. Her dermatologist did say the morphea would become less active and eventually die out, but that seems not to be the case with my daughter. Her skin is still red and inflamed, which shows that there is some activity. The methotrexate is keeping it under control, but when will it die out? Her left leg is thinner than her right leg and recently she has had aching where the Morphea is on her leg.
My questions are: Does anyone else have morphea and vitiligo? And what is the outcome? Also has anyone experienced any recent improvements with their morphea?
