Can I get disability benefits for Bullous Disease? Bullous disease is term given to a group of dermatology diseases which are characterized by the formation of fluid filled blisters over large areas of the skin surface. The group includes: Bullous Pemphigoid; Linear immunoglobulin; Epidermolysis Bullosa Qcquisita; Dermatitis Herpetiformis; Stevens-Johnson Syndrome; Pemphigus Foliaceus; Pemphigus Vulgaris and Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis.
Often with these diseases, people suffer large, painful blisters which leave behind raw sores which are prone to infection. Outbreaks can occur on one’s fingers, hands, arms, feet, toes, legs, groin and neck region. During the outbreaks and immediately following them, the effected portions of the body are basically unusable due to the pain associated and the need to keep the affected region properly dressed. It is difficult to properly care for oneself during these times, much less engage in sustained full time work.
The Social Security Administration lists bullous disease as a condition which can be disabling when the symptoms interferes with the person’s ability to engage in sustained work activity. Listing 8.03 in the Code of Federal Regulations lays out in specifics the impairments which a sufferer has to have in order to qualify for Social Security Disability Benefits, but if you do not “meet or equal” this listing, you may still be entitled to disability benefits if your condition, in conjunction with any other physical or mental impairment, prevents you from returning to work you have done in the past and other substantial work you might be qualified to perform given your age, education and acquired work skills.
If you or a loved one lives in Alabama, you are suffering from the effects of bullous disease and you believe you are disabled as the result and are entitled to Social Security Disability or SSI benefits, you do not have to take on the Social Security Administration alone.
