Have psoriasis triggered by stress. Should I try Evion and Xernia cream for dryness?

I have mild psoraisis on finger joints and leg finger joints and mildly on hands since last 12 years. I am applying corticosteroids preparations like flucort,clobetsol propionate,dipsalic etc. on a repeated doses in cycles with different formulations so no formulation becomes resistant.Now as its clear that as soon as the patient stops application psoraisis increase its presence in a few days. I have observed this is purely due to mental disturbances and my sensitive nature as i m in construction industry. I had SVT attack in November 2010 ,since I am taking angizem CD 90( Diltiazem ) for high BP and clonezapam + nitrest along with it in mild doses which keep my mind less active to thoughts, which (clonozepam) i feel reduces the inflamation of psoraitic skin.Does moisturizers like Evion cream help in dryness and Xerina cream(Glycolic Acid+ Urea Cetylated Fatty Ester Complex) of Ranbaxy brand help. Shall i try homeopathic treatment cause I had started homeopathic treatment for 3 months which had given good results and cleared psoraitic flakes upto 75% in 3 months, but had to discontinue due to the SVT attack i had undergone.Pl. advise(I am of Indian origin and vegeterian)

Dermatologist Dr. Pooja Chopra 's  Response
you have a very mild and localised form of psoriasis. also you are well informed about the disorder. stress is definitely one of the triggering factors for psoriasis. during the time when you have active lesions you should be applying topical steroids along with moisturizers, and the times when you don't have flakiness use moisturizers as a prophylactic measures. you can go ahead with the application of evion twice or thrice in a day. also you should understand the fact that this skin disorder is always going to be there with you (you can keep it in control though), so homeopathic treatment is not going to uproot the disease at all.
hope all your queries got answered.
