Morphea is a rare skin condition characterized by small red or purple patches that develop firm white or ivory centers. The affected skin becomes tight and less flexible. Morphea mor-FEE-uh is a rare skin condition that causes painless, discolored patches on your skin. Typically, the skin changes appear on the abdomen, chest or back.

But they might also appear on your face, arms or legs. Over time the patches may become hard, dry and smooth. Morphea tends to affect only the outer layers of your skin. But some forms of the condition also affect deeper tissues and may restrict movement in the joints. Morphea usually subsides on its own over time, though recurrences are common.

In the meantime, medications and therapies are available to help treat the skin discoloration and other effects. Signs and symptoms of morphea vary, depending on the type and stage of the condition. They include:. Morphea usually affects only the skin and underlying tissue but sometimes involves bone as well. The condition generally lasts several years and then disappears by itself. It may leave scars or areas of darkened or discolored skin. If you notice reddish patches of hardening or thickening skin, see your doctor.

Early diagnosis and treatment may help slow the development of new patches and allow your doctor to identify and treat complications before they worsen. The cause of morphea is unknown. Some experts think it is caused by an infection, but that theory has not been proved. The condition isn't contagious. Mayo Clinic does not endorse companies or products.
