Plaque Psoriasis

What are the symptoms of guttate psoriasis?

A Answers (1)

  • Guttate psoriasis symptoms develop suddenly, usually following a viral or bacterial infection such as strep throat or an upper respiratory infection. Reddish or pink skin lesions in the shape of a teardrop appear on the skin, most commonly on the trunk of the body, arms, and legs but sometimes in other areas. The lesions may be covered with scales (flaky, silver-colored skin) and might itch. Symptoms of guttate psoriasis can be more severe in individuals with weak immune systems requiring strong medications to suppress the immune system.
