looking for suggestions regarding management of a term male baby born to a primi ,with 1st degree consanguinity ,which was referred from a local hospital with history of large bullous lesions noticed at birth, all over the body including oral mucosa ,which peels easily on touch.Their is no palmar or plantar lesions though.

lesion is suggestive of epidermolysis bullosa ,most likely dystrophic variety .The child is currently on ampicillin and cloxacillin combination along with acyclovir (just to cover for possible Staphylococcal /herpes).nursing care with mupirocin local application and paraffin gauze covering .Any more suggestions/update/advances on the subject welcome .Regards and happy new year to all.shall post photos soon.
