Brief Answer:
need further details

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for contacting Ayurveda with your health concern and before prescribing you the medicine(s) do let me know about the following:

1. Which area is affected of psoriasis?
2. Is it related with weather or due to medical condition like: diabetes, hypothyroidism, or decreased nutritional status?
3. any examination/opinion of Dermatologist?
4. any history of consumption of any endotoxins either in the form of herbs, mineral or animal product?
5. Since dietary management remains more or less similar [with slight difference with respect to site] thus

i. TAKE: diet rich in protein,iron,folic acid, brown rice, orange, green vegetables, wheat, barley, green gram,lemon,turmeric,bitter gourd,garlic, pomegranate, nutmeg,bitter and sweet (not sour) food, dry ginger, khadira, black pepper, long pepper, old clarified butter,honey,light exercise,massage, boiled and filtered water to drink, tea, coffee(not after meals or during periods of fasting)

ii. AVOID: raw fruits, raw radish, too much oily food, over eating, brinjal, tomatoes, soap, jaggery,coffee,sour and sweet food,oil,curd,newly harvested cereals, incompatible foods, food with heavy, unctuous and cold properties, sesame,salt,black gram, milk,lisora,makoya, day sleeping, mental stress, excessive exercise.

iii. vitamin e-rich food: spinach, almond oil, sweet potato, sunflower seeds, and wheat germs are good for the skin problems.

iv. taking bath in sea water is very good for the skin treatment, similarly at home taking bath in Epsom salt or oatmeal containing water is also good.

v. because skin infection of any type is precipitated by stress and disturbed immune system, hence Immuno modulators are ideal choice.
