Causes & Triggers of Guttate Psoriasis
An outbreak is usually triggered by a bacterial infection — typically streptococcus (strep throat). It sets off an immune system reaction that causes the spots on your skin.

In some cases, guttate psoriasis is genetic. If someone in your family has it, your chances of getting it go up.

Other triggers include:
Upper respiratory
Sinus infections
Flu
Tonsillitis
Stress
Cuts, burns, or bites on your skin
Some drugs you take (antimalarials and beta-blockers)

Has your girlfriend had any of the symptoms listed in the article?
