welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
its a hereditary condition.and no effective therapy till now for it
only Mild forms of epidermolysis bullosa improve with age.
goal of treatment is to prevent the formation of blisters and subsequent complications
prevent skin trauma and blistering by wearing padding around trauma-prone areas such as the elbows, knees, ankles, and buttocks.
To prevent infection, a good skin care is needed.
good dental hygiene and good diet is very important
take care
