  1. Thank you all for your feedback and greetings. Hopefully I will be able to see a specialist soon. All the best!
  2. Hello everyone. I am 27. I was diagnosed with localized scleroderma, or morphea, about 5 years ago. I had a big spot on my anterior abdomen and a very large area encircling most of my right breast, and a couple of tiny ones.

And I hope for the best for each and every one of you. :)
