Bullous Disease and Social Security Disability Benefits
Bullous Pemphigoid is a disorder of the skin distinguishable by the blisters it creates on the skin. In most cases there are little to no symptoms. Redness and irritation are the only early stage signs that most experience. In severe cases however, large blisters (referred to as bullae) encompass the arms, legs, torso, and even the mouth. Symptoms after further development are rashes, itching, and mouth sores. If the blisters were to burst, open sores and ulcers can form.
Infections of the skin are common due to the sheer number of blisters that can rupture.
Bullous Disease and Social Security Disability Help
If the applicant’s impairment falls within any of the following categories set forth by Social Security’s Listing 8.03, then a strong claim may exist. The Listing is as follows;
8.03 Bullous disease (for example, pemphigus, erythema multiforme bullosum, epidermolysis bullosa, bullous pemphigoid, dermatitis herpetiformis), with extensive skin lesions that persist for at least 3 months despite continuing treatment as prescribed. .
The severity of the condition and how much of the body the blisters cover can make any line of work difficult. These blisters may be very easy split and that can cause issues (infection).
