Autoimmune bullous : You could be suffering from an autoimmune bullous disorder such as pemphigus or pemphigoid. It is really important that you go to a dermatologist and have skin biopsies performed to make the diagnosis. Depending on the results, there are treatments available that may really help you. Don't ignore this rash - it can get worse!
