Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder and presents with multiple scaly patches over skin and scalp.
Treatment depends on the extent of involvement.
If a small area is involved topical medication is used while greater involvement requires oral medication.
Psoriasis can be effectively controlled but cannot be cured.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
Thank you.
