Need information on Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid.
Hi @emmalouise, and welcome to Connect! I found some information on bullus pemphigoid from Mayo Clinic: http://mayocl.in/29uCUvy. I’m tagging @gonefishinmt, @johnbishop and @earljohnson5030 as they have all discussed their experiences with this condition.
@emmalouise, can you share the information you’ve found so far with the group?

Thank you for the information. Mucous Membrane Pemphigoid is a little different than Bullous Pemphigoid. I have it in the mouth and being treated with Clobetasol Gel in mouth trays. I may have to take an oral steroid, which I don’t want to do if possible. I was wondering if there were any natural ways to cope with MMP. I recently read about concerns of taking probiotics if you have autoimmunity disorder. I have been taking probiotics for years and now decided to stop and see if that makes a difference.
I'm wondering if anyone is following this discussion? The reason I ask is that I was talking with my dentist this morning and she mentioned she has this condition and a group of her patients are also affected. Has anyone found any treatments that help? I did find a few links that may be helpful for anyone looking for more information.
