Hi, Welcome to HCM.
First of all, you are using a drug recommended by your friend?
Psoriasis is a complicated disease , which needs close observation and using very specific and sophisticated drugs. Even sometimes methotrexate like drugs are also used.
The symptoms you told may be an alarming condition.
Get physically examined by any dermatologist for further management.
so, it is not safe to use these drugs.
