Pemphigus Support Group

Pemphigus is an autoimmune disorder that causes blistering and raw sores on skin and mucous membranes. As with other autoimmune disorders, it is caused when the body's defenses mistake its own tissues as foreign, and attack the cells. There are three types of pemphigus which vary in severity: pemphigus vulgaris, pemphigus foliaceus, and paraneoplastic pemphigus.

I hope you don't mind me posting on this site, I just wondered if anyone could offer any advice.

I am a complementary practitioner working with animals. I have recently been asked to see a horse that is suffering from Pemphigus - just been diagnosed.

The vet has prescribed prednisone for her which I think is helping although she has only been on it for a week. I have been asked if there is anything I can do to support her. I am wondering whether anyone has gone down this route and if so have you found anything that has helped.

Many thanks
