Severe psoriasis, liquid is oozing out of the scales, burning sensation. Any treatment?

Hello.. I have severe psoriasis and have been taking ayurvedic treatment for the last one year. It has worked on most infected parts other than my leg. In the last 3-4 days, the scales have dramatically thickened and now some liquid is oozing out all the time which is really worrying me. Its burning a fair bit. The infected area looks really red and black. Skin looks very flaky. Have stopped my medicines for a couple of days now. Dont know what to do.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

See a Dermatologist..
The treatment is fairly advanced nowadays / there is a choice of drugs / and you have a good chance of improvement.
Local applications and systemic drugs like immuno suppressants are very helpful - in reducing the flare up and delaying complications...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
