This image depicts the lower extremities of a infant, revealing bullous, erythematous lesions, due to a condition known as epidermolysis bullosa (EB). In the foreground, the left lateral thigh, lower leg and foot display lesions, and in the background, the right medial thigh exhibits a lesion. EB is a group of blistering skin conditions. The skin is so fragile in people with EB that even minor rubbing may cause blistering. Most people with EB have inherited the condition through faulty genes they receive from one or both parents.
