Once your doctor analyzes your symptoms and clinical history, they will perform a physical examination of your skin and mouth to assess the injuries and their severity. You may also require blood tests to identify the characteristic antibodies present in pemphigus, a skin biopsy of blister tissue, and an endoscopy to check for throat lesions. All of them will help confirm the diagnosis.
The treatment to follow will depend on your symptoms and damage, as well as the type of pemphigus you suffer from, but it generally consists of inhibiting the development of blisters with certain topical or intravenous medications, such as:
- Intravenous fluid nutrition when mouth ulcers are so painful they prevent eating.
- Anesthetic pills to reduce the pain caused by mouth ulcers.
