An Overview

What is pemphigus?

Pemphigus refers to a genus (a group) of very rare diseases that cause soft blisters on the skin. These blisters break easily. The various types of pemphigus include:

  • Pemphigus Vulgaris
  • Pemphigus foliaceus
  • Drug-induced pemphigus
  • Fogo selvagem
  • Paraneoplastic pemphigus

The most common pemphigus is pemphigus Vulgaris, occurring in about 70% of people who get pemphigus. Pemphigus foliaceus affects only the skin and develops on the face, scalp, and upper body.

To most people, the blisters appear on their skin, while some other pemphigus cause blisters to form inside the mouth. In a few other types of pemphigus, blisters form on moist tissues that line the inside of the nose and eyes, throat, anus, or genitals. The blisters are extremely soft and break open very easily. When they break, they leave very painful sores, sometimes even in the throat and mouth, causing difficulty in eating and talking. These sores take a long time to heal, and with some cases, they may never heal.

Pemphigus can develop in healthy persons, although modern medicine has made the problem controllable. Visit our Dermatology clinic London for counsel and treatment today or call 020 71833648.



ReviewsI was suffering from terrible allergies. Over the counter medications didn't help much and life was going from bad to worse. I started spending more time browsing the web for a solution. Then, a colleague recommended me the Clear skin Clinic. I went for the first consultation without much expectation. But the moment I arrived, all my worries were put to rest. I underwent the pinprick allergy testing to learn that I was allergic to dust mites. Since then, I bought cleaning products and vacuums as suggested by these people and that helped. I suffer seldom now, thanks to Clear skin Clinic.

ReviewsMy eczema had been a constant problem since I was young and I had treatment of different sorts with mixed results. It was a colleague who suggested that I go to Clear Skin Clinic and see if they could help. I was so impressed by the staff at the clinic all of whom were kind and efficient. I have started treatment now and my skin is looking so much better.
