Shirlil,
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 keithx1@earthlink.net I'm sure I'd be able to meet with you if you would like.
Keith.
