How to Treat Pemphigus Vulgaris?

Medical Treatment:
  • No cure for pemphigus vulgaris
  • Steroid medication (corticosteroids) plus other immunosuppressant medication are usually prescribed
  • It can help to stop the healthy tissue damage by the immune system
  • Stop taking medication if symptoms disappear and do not come back when treatment is stopped
Do the following things to help cope with pemphigus vulgaris:
  • Do not eat spicy, crispy or acidic foods
  • Use a soft toothbrush
  • Use anaesthetic mouthwashes, especially before eating or brushing your teeth
  • Have dental check-ups regularly
  • Take painkillers
  • Avoid activities which make skin damage
  • Practice good oral hygiene (use antiseptic mouthwash)
You should see a dermatologist if you develop symptoms of an infection, such as your skin becoming very painful, hot and red, or a build-up of pus under the skin
