Answer

As in other autoimmune bullous diseases, the goal of therapy is to decrease blister formation, to promote healing of blisters and erosions, and to determine the minimal dose of medication necessary to control the disease process. Therapy must be individualized for each patient, keeping in mind preexisting conditions and other patient-specific factors.
