Blistering skin diseases can be painful and cause aesthetic issues with your skin. Two of the more common blistering skin diseases include pemphigus and pemphigoid groups of skin conditions. These diseases can affect a wide variety of individuals and areas of the body. Our dermatology team at LM Medical NYC offers advanced pemphigus and pemphigoid treatment at our clinic in Manhattan.

What is Pemphigus?

Pemphigus is a group of blistering skin diseases that can affect the skin, mouth, nails and moist tissue areas of the body. The most common form is pemphigus vulgaris, which can start with mouth or throat sores, but also spreads to the skin and other areas. Not only can pemphigus cause painful blisters and sores, patients may also experience fatigue, eye problems, light sensitivity and weakness. There is not a cure for pemphigus, but there are effective treatments to control this skin disease. Treatments can include corticosteroids, biologics, immunosuppressants and other medications.

What Is Pemphigoid Bullous?

Pemphigoid is a group of blistering skin diseases. One of the most common in this group is pemphigoid bullous, although it is still fairly rare. Bullous pemphigoid is an autoimmune skin disorder where the immune system attacks the skin and tissue. This disorder primarily affects those 60 years of age or older, causing large blisters that are prone to infection. Treatment can include corticosteroids and immunosuppressant medications.

Blistering skin diseases are often caused by autoimmune disorders. It is important to see an experienced dermatologist to ensure an accurate diagnosis and effective treatment for blistering skin disorders like pemphigus and pemphigoid bullous.

If you have skin blisters or sores, you may be experiencing a form of blistering skin disease. Contact us at LM Medical NYC to schedule an appointment with our board certified dermatologist for pemphigus and pemphigoid treatment at our clinic in Greenwich Village.

Dr. Lesley Rabach is incredible at what she does, she recommends small adjustments that look so natural but also give a noticeable result. Beyond that, she's absolutely lovely to be around and the entire energy of her office is so pleasant! I'll be turning to her for her recommendations go forward, it's SO important to find a plastic surgeon you can really trust. She is it! Thank you!

I’ve been visiting LM medical for 4 years. The staff is always welcoming. The location is beautiful and modern. Dr. Morgan and Dr. Lesley are amazing physicians. They are very personable and genuine. They are open to questions and addressed all of my concerns. I have been more then pleased with my experience with LM Medical and I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Morgan Rabach and her staff provide top tier care and excellent service. Dr. Rabach is well-versed in the latest research. She made lots of time to discuss my dermatological history (what’s worked, what hasn’t worked, what hasn’t been tried) and all the available treatments to find the best path forward. She didn’t settle - pushing to make sure I got the best results possible. Would recommend without any reservations!

Toni D.

I have been seeing both Dr. Lesley & Dr. Morgan now for almost about three years now. Each time is better than the last. I trust them for natural results & they always deliver. What I value most is that they are never pushy! Always open, honest, and they are just overall good people.

Xavier M.

Dr Morgan and her staff are very warm and efficient professionals. She provided me with straightforward answers on three different concerns and more importantly, found the adequate treatment for me right away. A well staffed and organized team! Highly recommended.

Emily B.

The staff are incredibly friendly and so helpful. The wait times are very short, the space is clean and modern, and they're very quick to respond to questions over the phone or email. I needed a detailed receipt for my insurance and they gave me two different versions until my insurance was satisfied. The doctors are friendly, laid back, and really listen which is awesome. Would highly recommend!!

Fun, safe and the results were perfect. Can’t wait for my next procedure!
