Guttate Psoriasis Information and Treatment

Guttate Psoriasis is an inherited skin condition characterized by small round lesions and often occurring after a streptococcal infection. It is the second most common form of psoriasis that looks like small, salmon-pink drops on the skin. Typically it appears as multiple, small, red, scaly bumps which suddenly appear on the trunk, arms and legs. Guttate Psoriasis are due to bacterial infection such as strep throat, especially in younger patients. Some cases go away without treatment in a few weeks, while many cases are more persistent and require treatment. Guttate Psoriasis can occur to any person and at any age, but is more common in people of 20 years of age, and it affects both men and women equally, but is more common in fair skinned people. In guttate psoriasis, there may be profoundly dark spots.

Guttate psoriasis is characterized by many tiny areas of psoriasis. Small, red bumps similar in size and shape to drops of water ("gutta" is Latin for teardrop) appear on most of the body. Guttate lesions usually appear on the trunk and limbs. The face, scalp, and ears may also be affected, but these lesions are usually are harder to see and will diminish more quickly. In rare cases, a patient may have only a few lesions scattered around the body. For adult plaque psoriasis patients, the development of guttate psoriasis may be a sign of another flare-up of the disease. The diagnosis of guttate psoriasis is made by the combination of history, clinical appearance of the rash, and evidence for preceding infection. The rash comes on very quickly, usually within a couple of days, and may follow a streptococcal infection of the throat. It tends to affect children and young adults and has a good chance of spontaneously clearing completely.
