Blistering Skin Disease Treatment
Injured tissue below the skin can cause blisters. While most common with injuries, especially burns, there are diseases that can cause blisters to form. Many blistering skin diseases are related to autoimmune disorders where the body attacks its own tissue. Our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC offers blistering skin disease treatment at our facility in Manhattan.
Symptoms of Blistering Skin Disease
Blisters are small pockets or bubbles of fluid that appear under the skin. The fluid can contain water and proteins from damaged tissue. Systemic, or body-wide, diseases that cause blistering can include autoimmune disorders, severe cellulitis, drug interactions and other serious skin disorders. Blistering skin disease can impact deeper layers of the skin and tissue, causing the following symptoms:
- Blistering on the skin
- Blistering on the mucus membranes
- Skin infections
- Pain, itch and discomfort
Most blistering skin diseases are rare. The exact cause of autoimmune disorders that cause blistering skin disorders is not known. Our dermatologist can help diagnose blistering skin diseases and determine the best treatment option to heal the blisters, reduce outbreaks, minimize discomfort and improve the appearance of the skin.
The treatments for blistering skin disease vary, depending on the underlying cause of the disorder. Corticosteroids are a common treatment that can relieve inflammation and help control certain types of blistering skin disorders. For those linked to autoimmune diseases, immunosuppressive medications may be helpful in controlling breakouts. Some other options are biologic, antibiotic and antifungal medications, especially in those with skin infections.
