Pemphigus is a rare skin condition. More common in elderly.
Treatment is similar to skin burns.
I can not confirm the diagnosis as I have not seen the patient.
But I'm concern is steroid treatment.
There may be fluctuation of blood sugar.
In comparison to other steroids Deflazacort has less effect on blood sugars.
