Psoriasis | Types, Diagnosis, Complications & Treatment

4) Guttate Psoriasis (Raindrop Psoriasis)

It is so named as it manifests itself as numerous pink scaly spots. Guttate psoriasis often spares palms and soles and affects the trunk, upper arms, and thighs. Unlike Psoriasis Vulgaris, it has a low prevalence estimated to be less than 2% of psoriatic patients. Most patients who develop guttate psoriasis are children and teenagers. Guttate psoriasis is found to have a sudden onset following an acute streptococcal throat infection.
