I am not certain the type, and I do not have lesions around mouth. I just read an article about doctors growing skin for people with a rare disease called epidermolysis bullosa. Can we get some research too?!? I just can't believe this condition continues to be managed, and ineffectively at that, with Antibiotics (hello resistance). If there is an immune dysfunction involved, they need to find it. Why isn't more research being done, seriously! ANYONE can acquire this condition. It's not as rare as doctors want to lead you to think. I've read so many people's stories. They want you to believe it's rare, so you don't make a fuss, and they can carry on prescribing you Antibiotics like it's candy. I bet many people have this to some degree on them, and if it gets out of hand (like for us), they get to look forward to lots of candy too.
