Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to ask a doctor service
I have gone through your query.
Treatment of psoriasis in children depends on the extent of involvement.
In mild cases of involvement topical steroid and coal tar ointment can be applied.
In severe cases systemic treatment like methotrexate and phototherapy in the form of UVB therapy can be tried.
I hope to have answered your query and would be happy to answer any further queries.
