How does pustular psoriasis develop?

ANSWER

The disease can mimic normal psoriasis at first: You'll have patches of red skin with raised scales that itch or burn. Once the blisters appear, it's pustular psoriasis.

Some breakouts are sudden and severe, while others affect people many times over months or years. More people have symptoms that fall between these extremes.
