Epidermolysis bullosa is a section of unusual diseases which lead to blistering of the skin. The blisters may show up as a result of heat, or friction from rubbing, minor injury, scratching or adhesive tape. In severe cases, the blisters may appear in the internal parts of the body, such as the lining of the intestines or the oral cavity.
Most of the times, this condition is inherited. Usually the people who are most likely to get affected are infants and children in the age group of 5-7 years.
Epidermolysis bullosa blisters generally do not appear until a toddler first begins to walk or until an older child begins new physical activities that more intense friction on the feet.
It is an inherited disorder and according to researchers’ findings, genetic involvement may be involved in causing it.
Below are the types of epidermolysis bullosa:
This condition is called mixed type since blisters appear across the layers of skin.
A significant family history of epidermolysis bullosa is the major risk factor for developing the disorder.
