Pustular Psoriasis (cont.)

When to Seek Medical Care

Visit your doctor if you have a rash of raised, pus-filled bumps on your skin, especially if you have generalized symptoms such as headache, fever, chills, joint pain, a feeling of general discomfort or uneasiness, decreased appetite, and nausea. It is important for your physician to evaluate you for a potentially curable condition caused by an infectious organism as well as consider whether or not you may have another associated chronic problem.

Visit your doctor any time you have sores of any type in your mouth or throat that make it difficult for you to breathe or swallow.
