What are PV symptoms? PV is a rare autoimmune disease that affects the skin, joints, and eyes. The most common symptom is intense itching or burning of the skin. Other symptoms include redness, swelling, and blistering of the skin on both sun-exposed and unexposed areas. This article will discuss what symptoms to expect if you have been diagnosed with this condition!
What are the symptoms of PV?
According to Mayo Clinic’s website, Pemphigus Vulgaris (PV) “causes blisters in your mouth” as well as “involuntary separation of the outer layer of tissue from your lips, which can cause scarring when they heal.” Additionally, it causes “blisters on other parts of your body, including your genitals.”
The earliest symptom of PV is usually a red, raised lesion on the skin. Lesions are typically round or oval with an erythematous base and elevated borders. They do not have defined edges unless they rupture or when secondary infection occurs. These lesions can also appear anywhere in the body but often appear first on sun-exposed areas such as “cheeks, nose, and ears.” Then pemphigus vulgaris causes blisters to form wherever you happen to be experiencing intense itching at that time, so it can seem like one area has multiple outbreaks occurring all over simultaneously! It’s difficult to predict where these will happen next since PV looks random. Still, there appears to be some correlation between stress and symptoms, so outbreaks often occur during periods of heightened stress.
