Hi there! I am busy looking into autoimmune disorders that affect the skin, for college, and I came across one that is called bullous pemphigoid pemphigus. I understand that it can cause serious blisters and is very painful. Do you know more about bullous pemphigoid pemphigus? How common is it, and how is it treated? What are the possible complications?

Steroids and immunosuppressants may be used to treat bullous pemphigoid pemphigus, sometimes in combination which each other and sometimes separately. Since bullous pemphigoid pemphigus happens mainly to elderly people (over 70 years of age) there is not much we can say about the life expectancy of those with the disease. The disease manifests itself in different locations on the body. It can affect animals too.
