Have moderate psoriasis for a long time. Advised to take aloe vera. Which is good for this?

I have moderate psoriasis on the face for the past 4 years and it seems to be getting worse each year. I am looking to try some natural remedies for it now. I was advised to try aloe vera for the skin. What do you think ?
If it is alright to use aloe vera, can i use the gel direct from the plant. I have an aloe vera plant.

Thanks for the query.
Aloe vera might help you, as it is a moisturiser.
However you should apply some steroid cream also as only cannot treat or control psoriasis

Let me know if you have any other doubt.
