Caption

Acute guttate psoriasis on the skin of a 35-year- old woman. Psoriasis is a non-contagious inflammatory skin disease. With acute guttate psoriasis the rash develops quickly, covering the skin with multiple tiny areas of psoriasis, usually affecting the whole body. This disease mostly affects children and young adults. It often follows a streptococcal infection of the throat, immunisations or physical or psychological trauma. Treatment is with phototherapy or topical creams. Antibiotics are given against any underlying infection.
