  • I have epidermolysis bullosa acquisita. Occasionally I have to have my fingernails removed, as they act like ingrown toe nails. My doctors tell me there is no other way to prevent them from growing back, except for phenol carbolic acid, and I had a reaction to that when they took off a toe nail. In addition, I would like to contact other people with epidermolysis bullosa acquisita.
