Generalized Pustular Psoriasis (GPP) is a rare, lifelong skin disease that may be life-threatening if left untreated. It is characterized by flares that appear suddenly in the form of painful, pus-filled blisters over large body parts. It may be accompanied by more general symptoms, such as fever, headache, extreme tiredness, or a burning sensation on the skin. GPP can be confused with the more common plaque psoriasis, but they are distinct diseases.
Boehringer Ingelheim has created a resource page that includes the latest articles, downloads, and related press releases on GPP to assist with diagnosing and treating this rare disease.
