Answer

Treatment of patients with bullous pemphigoid requires coordination of care between the dermatologist and the patient's primary care provider. Patients with oral disease may require an otolaryngologist and/or a dentist for evaluation and care. An ophthalmologist should evaluate patients with suspected ocular involvement and those requiring prolonged high-dose steroids.
