Bullous pemphigoid is a rare, potentially fatal autoimmune blistering disease in which the immune system produces antibodies to the fibers that connect the outer layer (epidermis) and next layer (dermis) of the skin. These antibodies trigger inflammation that produces the blisters and itching of bullous pemphigoid. It is uncommon in childhood. This manifestation has close resemblance with Visphota in Ayurveda. A case of five month-old female patient with chief complaints of multiple ruptured blisters or bullae and reddish black lesions over both upper and lower extremities, face, lower abdomen, lower back, and scalp for two months is presented here. Oral administration of Paripathadi kadha and Mahatikta ghrita to mother and local application of Rasonta (~decoction of Daruharidra) with milk and Jatyadi taila to patient simultaneously were prescribed. Complete recovery within a month with no signs of relapse after three months of follow-up was noticed.
