My morphea doesn't look like most. In fact, it looks almost star-shape, mostly because it is in lines and not a solid shape. It is not hard either, so my fear is that it could be keloid morphea, which is a more severe form of morphea.
But I guess I'll have to wait and see.
It is mostly on my lower left thigh, not really noticeable if I wear shorts or pants. I don't think it is ugly, I just think of it as a part of me.
