Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am dr.kakkar (dermatologist and venereologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

Treatment for psoriasis depends on the extent of skin involvement. It consists of topical therapy alone for limited skin involvement and both topical and systemic therapy for extensive skin involvement. Therefore i request you to kindly upload a few images so that I can judge the extent of disease involvement on body (arms, legs, chest, torso, scalp etc) and guide you further.
