Guttate psoriasis

Anyone else out there with this issue ? I've had it for about a year. I have both cll and et(essential thrombocytosis-high platelets) and am on Hydroxyurea. I don't know if this kind of chemo is making it worse or what. I have read that this type of psoriasis could be a streptococcal thing. My GP has me on a cortisone Glaxol mix cream but I'm starting to wonder if there is something more effective.My skin has become very dry, I'm creaming 2's a day....so frustrating

I was diagnosed with Psoriasis 30 years ago when I was in my early 40s. In spite is sun, creams etc. I was unable to control it. Diagnosed with CLL some 5 years ago I underwent chemo. and am now on Ibrutinib. Since the chemo my condition has cleared up. I suggested to my consultant that my treatment had controlled Psoriasis which he simply said was an expensive method of treating it. I am more and more convinced that there is an affinity with CLL and Psoriasis. Anyone agree?
