    • What Is A Blistering Disease?
    • Acute Blistering Diseases
    • Chronic Blistering Diseases

    A blistering disease is a condition in which there are fluid-filled skin lesions. 1. Vesicles are small blisters less than 5 mm in diameter. 2. A bulla is a larger blister. Note that the plural of bulla is bullae. 3. Blisters may break or the roof of the blister may become detached forming an erosion. Exudation of serous fluid forms crust.

    Acute blistering diseases can be generalised or localised to one body site and are due to infection or inflammatory disorders. Although most commonly eczematous, generalised acute blistering diseases can be life-threatening and often necessitate hospitalisation. Acute blistering conditions should be investigated by taking swabs for bacterial and viral culture. A skin biopsy may be helpful in making a diagnosis.

    Diagnosis of chronic blistering diseases often requires skin biopsy for histopathology and direct immunofluorescence. A blood test for specific antibodies (indirect immunofluorescence) may also prove helpful in making the diagnosis of an immunobullous disease.
