Re: Guttate Psoriasis

My son is 23. He was also covered about 60%. Face, arms, chest, back, neck and scalp. Seems like once a year he has a flare up and it also takes 5 or 6 mos. to clear up. We now have his face cleared and spots on back are improving. His stomach and chest are always the worst. We have been on the treatment I described above since August. Hoping for continued clearing....think flareups could be caused by stress. I have heard on enbrel but thought it had serious side effects. The methotrexate worked for him over time but the weight loss, nausea etc were not worth a second try.
