Hello, I am the mother of a five-year-old child who about six months ago was diagnosed with morphea, a previously unknown illness for me.
The only thing I know about it is what her doctor told me, namely that it has no cure. I would like to hear, if somebody can help me by telling me, how this is treated, or how can I prevent it from spreading.
I am desperate, and I do not know which doctor would specialize in this illness. I would be very grateful if somebody could send me an answer. Thank you very much.
