Itchy Skin in Morphea

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if beginning morphea has itchy skin. I have been diagnosis with morphea but have only seen itchy skin connected with diffused. My morphea started with spots on my torso then spread to my arms and legs and back. The itching was really severe on my stomach. Thanks, Sharon

Hello, Isobelle

I am not a medical professional and I don't have morphea, but I have read several discussions of itching associated with morphea on the site. Here is a link to some individual stories of patients with morphea which may help:

isobelle44, I have the limited form of SSc and I have had several severe bouts of the itching attacks. The first 3 years were horrible. Everything has calmed down now. The itching hasn't bothered me for almost 6 months. Knocking on wood. I have enjoyed the reprieve thus far. Maybe it doesn't matter what form of Sestemic Sclerosis one has. Why some of us get it and others don't, who knows. I guess that it is good that all of us don't have the exact same symptoms.


Strength and Warmth,

Sheryl

The verdict is still out on which form of sclero I have, but some of my morphea plaques do itch and some don't. I have a large one that bothers me the most. I bought 100% pure shea butter and it helps. I initially bought it for my itchy, tight skin. It helped that as well as the areas on my arms that felt "rougher" than other parts.


I may have Scleroderma, but Scleroderma doesn't have me!
