in pemphigus vulgaris patient has mucosal(oral, nose, genitals etc) involvement is greater than the skin and after treatment skin leasions heals first to mucosa..immunosuppresent are mainstay of treatment..you have been prescribed rightly with prednisolone,,, but the treatment last for years in a tappering dose for prolonged remission...dont loose hope and take the medicine regularly unless u have a disease free period...
pulse therapy and biologicals can be other options if u are facing side effect with daily regimen.
