Guttate psoriasis produces small red drop like lesions on the trunk, arms and legs often accompanied by scaling.
Drop-sized, red dots form — usually on the trunk, arms, and legs. Lesions occasionally form on the scalp, face, and ears.
Appears quickly, usually a few days after a strep throat or other trigger, such as a cold, tonsillitis, chicken pox, skin injury, or taking certain medications.
Can first appear as another form of psoriasis, such as plaque psoriasis, and turn into guttate psoriasis.
