Welcome and thanks for your query.
Psoriasis may require systemic medications like retinoids, methotrexate etc in addition to local treatment with steroids, keratolytic agents.
It would be good to see a dermatologist or internist and have yourself examined and treated well.
Do get back to me if you have further queries.
