Seborrhoeic pemphigus lesions on the chest of a 50-year-old man. Pemphigus is a general term for a group of blistering autoimmune diseases, where the immune system attacks the skin and mucous membranes. The seborrhoeic form of the disease affects the sebaceous glands. Treatment for pemphigus conditions usually involves the use of high doses of steroids, with antibiotics to prevent infection of the blisters.
