Hello everyone. My name is Federica, I am sixteen years old. I have had localized morphea in my lower back for two years, and after a year almost all of my upper back was affected.
I had radiation therapy at the Civile Hospital in Brescia. It worked great for the morphea in my lower back, however, it did not do much with the rest of the morphea.
I would like to ask if there is anybody that knows of another remedy that works. Thanks a lot.
