In brief: Morphea

Limited scleroderma is called morphea and it is a inflammatory thickening of the skin which is thought to be a reaction to an infection.
Early treatment with Minocycline can cause it to burn out leaving discoloration. Fractionated laser can be used on post morphea lesion to i prove color and texture.
