How can psoriasis be cured ?

I am 32 female and waiting on an appointment with a dermatologist who was referred by my family Dr after realizing that my mild exzema looks more like psoriasis , my question is, that I have these small sliver like things coming from my pores. they are hard almost like a white head but they are dry like a peice of glass. They are on my face, chest, breasts, pubic hair area and my inner thighs. I would like to know what it is, and how I can treat it.

Dermatologist 's  Response
This may not be psoriasis.
in psoriasis you basically get a patch of red skin with silvery scales on it.
what you have sounds like reactive perforating collgenosis. Just the name is big, nothing to worry about. see your dermat and then let us know on this forum, what he has to say.
