Ayurveda is an old science with a revolutionary & modern perspective. This science not only heal your disease but it heals your body too. According to modern point of view "Pemphigus" is an autoimmune disease. Ayurveda explains that the route cause of autoimmune disease is weakness of immune system. If, a body have weak immune system it starts attacking a particular organ and give birth to various diseases. One of them is pemphigus that is an autoimmune rare skin disorder.

The dosha that is most prominent in this disorder is "Pitta". Imbalance of pitta in body affect the skin and causes blister and sores on the mucous membranes.


The name pemphigus is derived from Greek word "pemphix" meaning "pustule". In this disease autoantibodies are formed against desmoglein. Desmoglein (type of proteins) forms glue that attaches adjacent epidermal cells through desmosomes. Blisters are formed in this case that can cover a significant area of the skin.


There are variety of pemphigus such as pemphigus vulgaris, pemphigus foliaceus, paraneoplastic pemphigus and intradermal neutrophilic IgA.

  1. Pemphigus vulgaris: This is most common between the ages of 40 and 60. It may occur at any age. The sores often originate in the mouth. This disorder occurs when antibodies attack Desmoglein 3.
  2. Pemphigus foliaceus: The sores appear often on the scalp, on the chest, back & face. In this condition mouth sores do not occur. It is the least severe one of all the three varieties. This condition is less painful as compare to pemphigus vulgaris.
  3. Paraneoplastic pemphigus: This variety is least common type of pemphigus but most severe. In this case sores appear on lips, mouth & esophagus that are very painful. It often involves the lungs that causes constrictive bronchiolitis.
  4. Intraepidermal neutrophilic IgA dermatosis: It is characterized by intraepidermal bullae with neutrophils, some acantholysis and eosinophils.
