    My niece is studying for her Am.Medical Board exams. She just sent me an email stating that celiac disease can cause phemigus. I don’t beieve I have celiac disease, but could something in my diet cause bullous phemigoid?

      Celiac disease is caused by allergy to gluten, the wheat protein. Gluten allergy also causes Dermatitis herpetiformis (DH), a different blistering skin disease that has some similarities to bullous pemphigoid (BP). There is an article about DH on my blog. I’m not aware of any dietary causes of BP.
