What is EB?

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a group of genetic skin conditions that cause the skin to blister and tear at the slightest touch.

There are many different types of EB, all classified under four main types ranging from the mildest, in which only the hands and feet are affected, to the most severe, which can have a devastating effect on any part of the body causing lifelong disability and pain. In severe cases EB can sadly be fatal.
