More information about Blistering Disorders

What is a Blistering Disorder?

Blistering disorder is an umbrella term for a number of disorders that involve blistering of the skin. Blistering disorders typically affect either the skin or the mucous membrane of both and can vary in appearance and presentation. Blistering disorders can be extremely painful and uncomfortable and can cause patients to feel self-conscious and embarrassed from the appearance of red, blistery skin.  

Blisters occur from a range of causes from chronic illnesses to less serious cases that often do not require medical attention. Depending on the specific type of blistering disorder, there may be a different clinical course or treatment to take. It’s important to speak with a medical professional to discuss any unexplained blistering disorders on the skin to determine the severity of the condition and how best to treat symptoms.

At Skincredible Dermatology, we can help identify the cause of patients’ blistering disorders and develop an appropriate course of treatment.
