What is EB?

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare disease whereby the skin blisters and peels at the slightest touch. Living with EB has been likened to living with third degree burns. It is very painful, and sufferers must be bandaged every day with dressings to protect and medicate their wounds.

EB is characterised by skin fragility with blister formation occurring spontaneously or following minor trauma. EB can be broadly divided into three major categories: Simplex, Junctional and Dystrophic. These categories can be further subtyped based on inheritance and clinical features.

It is estimated that there are around 1,000 people in Australia who have some form of EB and over 500,000 worldwide. It occurs in all racial and ethnic groups and affects males and females equally. EB may not always be evident at birth. Milder cases of EB may become apparent when a child crawls, walks, runs or when young adults become more physically active.
