9. Picture of Guttate Psoriasis
Guttate psoriasis is a skin condition that causes small, drop-like lesions on the skin. Fine scales are also apparent in guttate psoriasis. Streptococcus, a type of bacterial infection, is a trigger for the disease. The skin lesions usually appear in about 2 to 3 weeks after an occurrence of strep throat. Guttate psoriasis can resolve and never recur.
