Sclerodermia... my morphea story

Recommended Posts

I'm a 27years old italian girl. I hope my English will good for this topic.

Last year it has been diagnosed me a "sclerodermia" --> morphea.


I met doctors that told me to make a cure made of cortison and other doctor that thought was null to make, therefore as the disease has arrived to me it had to go to pass. 4 months ago my family doctor prescribe me one box of antihistaminics.. one a day before go to sleep.


I had a thickened brown layer of derma on my belly 15x4 cm.. i took 20 tablets of the antihistamine and the thickness is disappeared! It remain only the skin a little brown.. but with a little bit of cortison cream and hydrating cream, my belly now is nearly like how it was first of the disease.


I don't know if I'm completly recovered.. maybe next year I discover the morphea in other part of my body. Is there somebody that try with the antihistaminics?


In this year I made 2 times the blood test but every time I was negativ to the anticops Ana, Ena, C+ etc...


I wait your reply.. thanks to read me.


Bye!! Barbara

Hi Barbara,

I'm glad you've joined Sclero Forums. I'm sorry you have morphea, but happy that your treatment has seemed to improve it so far.

As it happens, morphea often improves or goes away within the first five years of onset, even without any treatment at all. However antihistamines are frequently prescribed to help reduce inflammation, itching, and swelling associated with many skin diseases. My guess is that it hasn't "cured" you but has really helped.

And just by the passage of time, you may even see more improvements, although it may not ever clear up entirely. There's just no telling for sure, as the course of the disease is different in everyone.

For more information on Morphea and morphea treatments, please see our main site at:

Now my morphea seems desappeared... but if it would like to come back I will made a tour in this forum.. it's sure!

An embrace... Barbara
