What causes pemphigus?

- Moist tissues lining the inside of your nose, eyelids, anus, genitals, or other areas
The healthy cells are attacked by the body’s immune systems, which mistake the cells to be harmful or foreign bodies invading the body, such as viruses or bacteria. Research is ongoing into the reasons for this mistake by the body’s immune system. Although it is well established that pemphigus is not contagious.
