Guttate paoriasis

Posted Fri 5 Jul 2019 6.42pm by Slind73

My 15 year old daughter has guttate Psoriasis triggered by strep throat. Previous bouts have cleared up quickly without treatment. She had outbreak in Jan nearly clearing up by May( the longest and worse bout) she then got strep again and it has returned with vengeance. We have been given tar treatment after 3 other treatments didn’t work. This time it is really inflamed and o wondered if imflamation is part of the cycle and we should continue with tar treatment or if it is exacerbating it. This is the worst it has been she has had it about 3/4 weeks now this time. Thanks

I have found that coal-tar based treatments were highly effective against plaque and guttate psoriasis. I have never personally hear of one making the psoriais worse.

As they are topical treatments, might you consider treating only part of her body eith the coal-tar and compare to the untreated part after a few days?
