Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a rare genetic disorder characterized by infection and blistering of the skin due to minor trauma. Almost 100,000 Americans are infected by EB, the majority of which are children. Simple occurrences such as bathing, bumping into something, or even simple human touch can create new blisters or increase infection. While all forms of EB are painful some cases go as far as causing fusion of the fingers and toes, deformities, or in some cases even death.
