Is there a complte treatment for Morphea Scleroderma ?

Dear doctor , After reading about scleroderma on your website I m pretty sure I must be suffering from scleroderma. I ve had these tiny white spots with linear dark brown line at the back of my neck area and over the years it has spread to my arms and chest as well. However, i do not seem to have any other health problems ? Yes I do have a lot of acidity on and off on a regular basis ? the skin on my back has turned very dark brown and the skin has also become very dry and rough ? however, the marks that I ve on my arms and chest are relatively 6yrs. old and the back has had the white sopts with linear brown marks since i ve been 14yrs. old.. and it only seems to get worse . is there a complte treatment for this condition and can any treatment completely eliminate these marks ?

Hello Arpita,
As dr patel said, it is highly unlikely that you are having scleroderma.
Blackening and buring over the back , shoulders and chest --these things take me to Cutaneous amyloidosis ( an innocuous disease, nothing much to worry about). you may send me or dr patel, the pics of your lesions so that we can give a confirmed diagnosis, without much speculation
