Medicinal Treatment

The treatment depends on the severity of the disease. The blisters present on the skin must be treated with topical or oral medicines.

1. Antibiotics: These may be available in the form of ointments such as Mupirocin, to be applied on the affected skin. In case of secondary fungal infection, anti fungals such as Amphotericin B, Fluconazole etc.are prescribed to be taken orally by the patient.

2. Steroids: Oral steroids like Dexamethasone or Prednisolone alleviate the difficulty in swallowing. The doctor will prescribe these steroids only for a short duration as long term steroids are not recommended in this disease.

3. Soothing gels may also be prescribed by the doctor.
