Having psoriasis on arms, legs and torso. Medicine to cure psoriasis?

Hi i have psoriasis not bad but small dots that are on my upper arms and on my upper legs and a little bit on my torso it never hurts nor has it ever cause me trouble in daily life but i am looking to join the british army and have been told it could affect my application is this true if it is then is there something i can do to improve my chances of gaining entry, it normally fades away after a month or two (currently going now just looks like faint dry skin ) and doesnt return for a cycle of up to 5-7 years before another flair up should i wait for it to fade before applying or do i have a chance to get in even with it showing on my skin?

Thanks for the query,

Psoriasis cannot be totally cured.

It can be only controlled.

You can use steroid creams to control this.

Please meet a dermatologist for exact diagnosis.

And get the medication prescribed.
