Was diagnosed with Morphea when I was about thirteen following a trip to the Dermatologist after discovering a patch of thickened discoloured skin on my stomach. No real explanation as to what this was or what had caused it.
Fast forward ten years and the patch has now grown and covers the majority of one half of my stomach. I also have a patch on my forearm which is not discoloured, but is instead bald and rather shiny! When I brought the new developments up with the GP, I was given some hydrocortizone cream and told to try that for two weeks in case it was a fungal infection despite me telling them it had steadily increased over a ten year period rather than just appear. I was also recently diagnosed with Raynauds but no mention was made by my GP about the connection between the two.
I would just like to hear what people think, any tips or advice as to what is best, what to avoid etc because I dont massively feel like the doctors have offered much help
