Guttate Psoriasis (cont.)
IN THIS ARTICLE
When to Seek Medical Care
People should see a doctor or health-care professional if they develop a sudden eruption of small red drop-like lesions of guttate psoriasis. This form of psoriasis is usually a mild inconvenience to most people. Most of the time, the lesions last several weeks to a few months. Other times, the guttate eruption can develop into chronic plaque psoriasis. Scarring is not a problem.
The doctor can prescribe treatments that help relieve the itching. This type of psoriasis usually "runs its course" and goes away without treatment in a few weeks.
