Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query . It is appearing like morphea. It is an auto immune disorder where the skin becomes thin and depressed. you require treatment with topical or if possible injectable steroids. Did your dermatologist suggest you any treatment? This disease can be controlled but cannot be totally treated. Its good that you have a localised form.

No treatment was recommended. ...what would treatment do? The normal tissue around it is sensitive. Any suggestion? Does it get larger over time? She did recommend taking a biopsy. ... but she said it wasn't necessary

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for the follow up, sorry for the delay in answering. Treatment can prevent further extension of patch. You can apply flutivate ointment. Yes biopsy can be done to confirm diagnosis, but it is not required as the lesion is obvious. Unnecessary pain to you can be avoided. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
