Learn about EB

Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB) is a complex rare genetic connective tissue disorder. There are many genetic and symptomatic variations, but all share the prominent symptom of extremely fragile skin that blisters and tears with any friction. Take some time to learn about EB and pass your new knowledge along to others.
