Pemphigus Vulgaris (PV), also known as “pistol-palm pustules”, is an extremely rare and severe (potentially fatal) condition that causes extremely painful blistery sores to develop all over the skin, inside the mouth, around the eyes and even inside the genital area.
There is currently no medical cure for PV, but treatments can help to control the blisters and symptoms. In order to treat it safely and effectively you must know the various symptoms and how to recognize them if you are experiencing any.
The most common and easily recognizable symptom of pemphigus is a red, swollen and painful rash on the face, neck and back of the neck. You may also experience a fever, chills and even lightheadedness. This condition can often be confused with a variety of other skin disorders, so be sure to check out your doctor or dermatologist for an accurate diagnosis.
The next common symptom of pemphigus is Pemphigic Keratitis, also known as P k, which occurs in approximately 70% of patients. P k is caused by a bacteria known as P aeruginosa and is generally caused by prolonged exposure to air pollution and excessive heat. Patients who have a family history of keratitis are at a greater risk of developing this condition.
Symptoms of Pemphigic Keratitis include fever, chills, skin irritation, swelling and sometimes, redness and soreness. In more severe cases, P k can cause blister formation and ulcers in the mouth, esophagus, stomach and even the esophagus. In addition to these complications, patients can also develop allergic reactions such as nausea, vomiting, hives, rashes and diarrhea. In some cases, the blisters can rupture and cause severe scarring.
Pelvic Pemphigs, or Pee – often called “penile pustules”, occur in men, but women are equally susceptible. They are caused by the same bacteria as P k, and are often a combination of a small rash and thickened tissue. Although they can occur anywhere on the penis, the most common place to experience them is the tip of the penis where they typically cause severe itching, pain and irritation.
There are several ways to treat PV, the most common being topical medications and surgical procedures, which can be effective. These are used to address the symptoms and prevent the blisters from spreading. However, if the blisters continue to spread, it is necessary to undergo surgery.
Surgery, particularly a laser surgery, is used to remove the blisters and relieve pressure on surrounding tissue.
While no medical cure exists, there are several ways that you can control and reduce the symptoms of Pemphiggis, including over-the-counter treatments and natural treatments that can be done with minimal expense and effort. It is important to educate yourself about pemphigus, including how to recognize the symptoms of pemphigus and how to treat them before you have an outbreak. Also be sure to contact your doctor or dermatologist if you experience any unusual side effects or if the condition worsens.
Over-the-counter medications and creams are commonly prescribed for this condition. Many people find relief with using topical treatments such as topical corticosteroids like prednisone. Some men may also use oral antibiotics to treat the infection. However, these treatments can leave behind long-term effects, which may make it more difficult for them to get pregnant.
Many people turn to alternative treatments for Pemphigus. Alternative treatments for this condition include homeopathic remedies, which can address both symptoms and underlying cause of pemphigus. There are also some herbal remedies that can be used, like Aloe Vera. Another alternative treatment is chiropractic care, which include physical therapy techniques to increase blood flow and lymphatic drainage to alleviate symptoms, and acupuncture.
Before starting any alternative treatment options, however, it is important to discuss it with a physician. There may be serious medical reasons why the cause of the infection is not being treated and it is best to rule out other serious conditions first. Also, it is important to determine the cause of the blisters in order to determine whether the use of an alternative treatment is safe for you.
Once you have decided on an alternative treatment option and consulted your doctor, it is important to read all the instructions carefully and follow all instructions. If you are experiencing severe itching, burning or pain, it is important to make sure that the chosen method of treatment does not cause further damage to the area. Also, always follow the directions to the letter. Seek medical advice if you have any questions or concerns.
