Dermatologist 's  Response
hello im dr satya,
your question was interesting, it may help a lot of other people suffering from the same disorder.
regarding diet and psoriasis there seems to be no direct evidence of any food that aggravates psoriasis, but any associated condition like for example urticaria, nettle fish, rashes, drug allergy, or drug reaction, and some medications do have a negative impact on psoriasis.
fresh fruits, vegetables, balanced food does help in maintaining a good health.
last bu not the least, psoriasis is not an allergic disorder but a genetic disorder, which gets its trigers from throat infections, and recurrent cold and cough .
thank you
and i hope that it may help you, any way i will try and keep you updated if you are interested.
feel free to contact.
