Dear Tazibellterrier,

My heart goes out to you, I can truly sense your suffering.

There are a group of conditions known as auto-immune blistering skin diseases that can produce symptoms similar to the ones that you are describing.

They can successfully be treated and managed with immunosuppresant medications.

Your next step would be to consult with a dermatologist and have a small skin biopsy.

Please keep us updated.

I hope that helps
