Let’s paint a picture for you.
Imagine having a textbook pregnancy with no complications. You drive to the hospital for “go time,” excited, nervous, and anxious to meet this new little girl or boy. Everything goes smoothly and the baby is born crying, the first sign that all is well.
Only this baby is also born without skin on his legs or feet and with tiny blisters around his mouth. None of the medical professionals in the hospital have seen something like this before. No one is sure what to do. One attending physician finally remarks, “That looks like it could be EB.”
