I have experienced plaque, PSA, guttate and pustular. I was diagnosed originally with pustular. I am clear of any symptoms of plaque, guttate and PSA right now. My pustular is under control. I say it is possible to have any and all.

I am on predisone right now. I'm sure it is lurking somewhere quietly waiting to surprise me.

i had plaque type p since age 15.it was pretty mild from 04-06. then i got strep throat and guttate and the plaque type completely vanished as the guttate took control.this may have occurred while taking antibiotics for strep. (i think i used prednisone 2 weeks while having guttate also)
after 1 year the guttate completely vanished and slowly was replaced with the plaque type again.
it's a little bit worse though than before having strep.
hopefully having strep throat and guttate was a once in a lifetime event for me.
