Hi there,

Bullous pemphigoid can be an intensely itchy and distressing condition that tends to affect older individuals. I tend to prescribe strong steroid creams (e.g. Dermovate), doxycycline tablets (an anti-inflammatory antibiotic) and, if we need them, steroid tablets. The combination is generally successful.

It tends to go away itself in one to five years.

Hope that helps a little!
