Question: Bullous Pemphigoid?? I just found out that the skin condition that my boyfriend has is Bullous Pemphigoid. I was under the impression that he just had a bad skin condition and he was embarrassed by it and never really talked about it before. I researched it and discovered that it is an autoimmune disorder that is rare in young people but can be brought on by various things. I am 7 months pregnant and my question this genetic? Can it be passed on to our child? I have researched and researched and I haven't gotten a clear answer to my question. I am concerned about my daughter being pre-disposed to an autoimmune disorder. If anybody knows the answer...please help.
