What are the symptoms of pustular psoriasis?

The most visible sign of generalized pustular psoriasis is a patch of inflamed skin covered with small fluid-filled blisters. The skin becomes red and hot to the touch. Other symptoms relate to the fact that your immune system is working double-time, draining the body of its resources.
