The frequency of milia, mild atrophic scarring, focal plantar hyperkeratosis and nail dystrophy is intermediate between that of localized EBS and EBS-DM see these termsand extracutaneous findings, other than occasional intraoral blistering, are rare. To avoid trauma to the fragile oral mucosa, precautions were adopted, including the use of gentle pressure during the surgeries and no suture usage. This syndrome is rare within this disease, and characterized by blisters on the hands and feet, altered skin coloring, and damage to the inner lining of areas such as the mouth, intestines, or eyes.


But you can take steps to help prevent blisters and infection.

Types of Epidermolysis Bullosa

Painful skin blisters [1] [2]. In this type, blistering occurs in a skin layer called the lamina lucida within the basement membrane zone, which is situated at the junction between the epidermis upper layer of the skin and the dermis lower layer. Erosions, blisters and eventually a tongue without papillae are observed in addition to ankyloglossia and microstomia 2,12,17,23, Dental plaque and white spot lesions control was weekly recommended.

There is no treatment or cure.

She also presented ankyloglossia and microstomia, probably due to secondary scars from repeated episodes of blistering and subsequent healing. At beginning of the dental treatment the patient was poorly cooperative and did not permit even a simple dental examination.

But severity can increase with age due to scarring, contraction and damage to skin tissue. The disorder occurs in every racial and ethnic group and affects both sexes.

It usually occurs at birth, but sometimes the symptoms are mild and detected only when epidermolissi child is older.

This disease is characterised by blister formation within the lamina lucida of the basement membrane zone [9]: Epirermolisis first two types tended to die in infancy and the last in early adulthood. The severity of EB is generally dependent upon many factors including type, subtype, and inheritance pattern.
