The molecules of the protein are located mainly on the skin cells (keratinocytes), the T-lymphocytes and monocytes. Such alterations in T leukocytes can lead to release of cytokines, stimulating the multiplication (proliferation) keratinocytes. Additionally, antigens associated with tissue proteins, antibodies are produced that leads to development of autoimmune process - allergic inflammation.

With a significant aggravation when disturbed general condition of the patient, or when frequent exacerbations administered cleansing the blood of toxic products through plasmapheresis. The positive effects and has enterosorption (purgation) through various enterosorbents.

When newly diagnosed guttate psoriasis, if confirmed by his association with staphylococcal infections, staphylococcal vaccine administered. Be sure to designate a complex of vitamins: vitamins B, C, D, A, E, D.

It is used as a new method of physical therapy - PUVA therapy (photochemotherapy) - long-wave radiation of the skin with ultraviolet rays with advanced drug administration, enhancing the photosensitivity of the skin.

To suppress the proliferation of the epithelium of the skin surface cells administered retinoids - drugs based activated vitamin A (e.g., neotigazon).

When mild form guttate psoriasis treatment begins with drugs for external use - ointments, creams, gels, lotions. During the advanced stage of the disease prescribe ointments, which include corticosteroids (such as triderm Triderm - care for skin diseases  Triderm - care for skin diseases
