Blistering Disease Clinic

Blistering skin diseases can range from relatively mild to extremely painful and debilitating. Both genetic (inherited/Epidermolysis Bullosa) as well as acquired (autoimmune/Pemphigus/Pemphigoid ) forms of blistering can occur. Precise diagnosis of these diseases is extremely important and therapy of blistering diseases can be challenging, requiring a familiarity with medicines which are only infrequently used by many dermatologists.

Our Doctors

Care and Treatment of Blistering Diseases

Treatments

In addition to specialized therapies and medications, the following treatments may be used.

Excimer laser treatment

A precise laser treatment for treating psoriasis, vitiligo, dermatitis, and other skin conditions without damaging healthy skin; requires shorter and fewer treatments than many other therapies.

Photodynamic therapy

A technique where special drugs called photosensitizing agents are applied to your skin (for skin cancers) or injected into the bloodstream and then activated with bright blue light.

Phototherapy

Also called light therapy, phototherapy exposes the skin to lasers, LED, fluorescent lamps, and ultraviolet or infrared radiation to treat diseases.  Phototherapy may be used on the whole body or smaller areas.

Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Hospital & Clinics patient, you have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.

Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.

For Patients

Please confirm the location of your appointment during scheduling as our doctors and staff see patients in multiple locations.

PREPARE FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT

  • Make sure your primary care provider sends any physician notes, laboratory results, X-ray films and other studies or bring them with you to your first visit.
