Newly Diagnosed in Sclero Forums (MAIN) Posted November 13, 2015 Hi Jasmin, Welcome to Sclero Forums! I'm sorry you have morphea. It is nothing to simply suffer from though, as it is a form of localized (not systemic) scleroderma that has proven treatments. Most especially, UVA1 phototherapy, which is very simiilar to a tanning booth. With morphea, it is always easier to control progression than to clear up any existing damage. Like Jo, I would urge you to seek treatment with a scleroderma expert that treats localized scleroderma, or at any dermatology center that has UVA1 equipment. (UVB is more common but a bit less effective for morphea.) Proper care now is very important and nothing to be postponed.
