Psoriasis is noncontagious common skin condition which causes rapid skin cell reproduction resulting in red, dry, scaly patches of thickened skin which at times is accompanied by itching.

although there are many treatments available, but because of its chronic recurrent nature psoriasis is a big challenge to treat.
Doctor :  
and involved constant followups and regular treatment
User :   Chronic i should say cos it been now for 18 months now
Doctor :  
The best treatment is individually determined by the treating physician and depends, upon the type of disease, the severity, and the total body area involved by it.
Doctor :  
since you are having a mild disease that involves only small areas of the body like its involving less than 10% of the total skin surface
Doctor :   allopathic topical (skin applied) creams, lotions, and sprays may be very effective and safe to use.
Doctor :  
Occasionally, a small local injection of steroids directly into a tough or resistant isolated psoriasis plaque may be helpful in diminishing it.
User :   After taking those Ayurvedic medicines , why so these black spots start to appear , i wonder ?
Doctor :   it may be due to the recurrent nature of the disease itself
Doctor :  
or it might be that they are not as effective

i would suggest you to get these lesions examined by a dermatologist
