Brief Answer:
methotrexate

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
There is no permanent cure of psoriasis.
We can just control it.
If the body involvement is less we suggest creams otherwise tablets are given.
I would like to know what percent of your body is involved.?
Also let me know if tablet methotrexate was prescribed to you anytime.
waiting for your response.
Thank you
