Thank you for follow up query.
I went through long agony you have passed through.There are no photos enclosed to get a glimpse of current lesions or previous lesions.It would be better you enclose it.
Drugs can cause such blister lesions ( may be a drug induced pemphigus ).also you had a deep ulceration in your ear which responded to steroids.
These can subside with stoppage if drug or may persist for years.
Many Pemphigus variants usually involves mucosa also,which is not clear.
Biopsy and immunological studies may be required for diagnosis.
Levodopa can cause such symptoms.
Please discuss with your dermatologist for thorough examination ,investigation and treatment.
Topical and systemic steroids,immunomodulator drugs are main stay for these types but it depends on your other conditions.
If you have any clarifications you can get back or else please close the discussion.
