Hello, welcome to Healthcaremagic. Morphea is a medical term for localized scleroderma. The disease involves isolated patches of hardened skin - there generally is no internal organ involvement. many different treatments have been tried for morphea including topical, intra-lesional, and systemic corticosteroids. Antimalarials such as hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine have been used. Other immunomodulators such as methotrexate, topical tacrolimus, and penicillamine have been tried. Ultraviolet A (UVA) light, with or without psoralens have also been tried. you must consult your doctor and try for some other treatment from these. Wish you good health.

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Morphea is skin localised scleroderma. It needs immunosupression as it is autoimmune disorder. What medication are you on currently. Avoid sunexposure. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and green leafy vegetables. Drink plenty of water. Various treatment exist like Tacrolimus ointment, PUVA therapy with UV radiation as well, intralesional steroid injfection as well. Kindly discuss with your Dermatologist about the various options available for your management.
