I have a rare skin disease called Pemphigus Foliaceous plus I also have Psoriasis. I would like to know if there is anyone out there with it and how they are
dealing with it.

Hi,
I have a pretty bad case of both.

The Pemphigus is a disease where the skin gets blistery and it is painful.

As far as Psoriasis the Dead Sea is known to help ALOT from the people i've spoken to,but it doesnt help for Pemphigus.

My daughter had very painful blisters on her stomach, feet & bottoms. I am not sure if she had the same thing you are going through, but the dermatologist gave us Erygel Gel 2% which worked wonders. Hope this helps.

Thanks,I will look into it ,but There is very little out there that helps the syptoms,it is a disease that has to be treated from the inside.Pemphigus is an autoimmune disorder that has to be treated by immunosupprecent medication.

B"H

Dead Sea Mud and salts are known to give relief - NOT CURE - to skin disorders such as psoriasis, eczema, etc. You can try Mud Hair Mask for your scalp, neck and behind the ears, and for the face you may want to try sulphur soap. Go to www.mineralcarespa.com for more information about the Dead Sea and its curative properties and view the list of products.

Good Luck!
