Pemphigus is a rare skin disorder that causes blisters of the skin or mucous membranes. Many times these blisters occur in the mouth or on the genital area. Pemphigus is a chronic condition, but it can best be controlled and managed with early diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Jamie Weisman at Medical Dermatology Specialists offers the most advanced treatment for pemphigus. Medical Dermatology Specialists can not only relieve your symptoms, but we are one of the few Atlanta dermatologists that can find a cure for your pemphigus as well.

Pemphigus is an autoimmune disorder with unknown triggers for the disease. With most autoimmune disorders, the immune system attacks foreign invaders such as harmful viruses and bacteria. With pemphigus, the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy cells in the skin and mucous membranes. There are significant complications that can result from this skin disorder. Infection of the skin where the condition occurs is common. However, if the infection spreads through the bloodstream, major medical complications can result. It is extremely important to see your doctor right away if you have blisters that show up in the mouth or on the skin. Without proper treatment, infections from pemphigus that go untreated can be fatal.
