mysterious red lines or scars on stomach and left side of body
lately I have noticed red lines that look like scars from inside my stomach area. The first one started out on my left side and is about 2 inches long. Then a second one just to the right of my belly button. And now a third one on my right side in about the exact opposite spot from the first one. They cause absolutely no pain so I have not seen a doctor yet. Does anyone have any idea of what this is?
Sounds like Scleroderma Morphea. That's how I started getting it. Both Sides of the stomach. Top of my thighs, a few on the sides of my breasts. See a dermatologist and have it biopsied to be sure. Get fast treatment (look into phototherapy and Devonex Cream) to minimize the damage, if your doctor agrees and it is morphea. It has really helped me.
