Simplifying Therapy for Pemphigus & Pemphigoid

Diplomat combines clinical expertise with personalized care.

Pemphigus and pemphigoid are autoimmune diseases, meaning they cause your immune system to attack healthy cells. Pemphigus and pemphigoid both target the “glue” that holds together your skin cells or your mucous membranes. This causes painful blisters that can be widespread.


It’s not clear what causes pemphigus and pemphigoid. Genetics might play a role. Environmental factors such as radiation, medications, or UV light might help cause it, too. Regardless of the cause, pemphigus and pemphigoid are not contagious.


Most people who have pemphigus and pemphigoid are middle-aged or older, though children and young adults can have it too. Men and women are equally affected.
