Brief Answer: details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the query. I can understand your concern. The treatment of psoriasis depends on the area of body involved. If less than 20 percent body area is involved we give topical medication while if it is more we give oral. Can you please tell me which all parts of her body is involved in the disease. This is important so I can help you better. waiting for your response. thank you

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Thanks for the follow up. I have checked the blood report. Only Hb is bit low rest all is normal.. Please give her iron tablets. Regarding psoriasis, the area of involvement is less so it can be managed with topical medication. Ask her to apply ointment halobetasol 0.05 % daily in night and some moisturizing cream daily in morning. She will get good relief within a month. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you
