Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for the query and photograph.
Psoriasis can be effectively controlled but cannot be totally cured.
Corticosteroids can be used to treat it but have side effects.
I treat such cases with protar cream in night and salicylic acid based cream in day.
This combination is safe and effective.
She can try this.
Let me know if you have any other doubts.
