I don't think you will be able to tell for at least a few months. A mild case would be minimal coverage on the body, usually the worst spots are any parts of the body that flex/bend, like elbows, hands, knees, feet and neck. A severe case would be like mine I suppose, pretty much total coverage of the body and very thick at times. I notice that you live in LA, so do I. I'll try and email you, my email address is I'm sure I'd be able to meet with you if you would like.
