Bullous Pemphigoid

Bullous pemphigoid is a rare autoimmune skin condition that causes large, fluid-filled blisters. They develop on areas of skin that often flex — such as the lower abdomen, upper thighs or armpits, typically in people aged over 60.

The lesions may flare in patients with the oral disease after eating hard and crunchy foods, such as chips, raw fruits, and vegetables.
