There is no sure shot treatment for Psoriasis .
Non steroidal approaches to the treatment of psoriasis include Tacrolimus which should be applied on the areas involved . tacrolimus is an anti inflammatory which will help in reducing the inflammation .
It is safe to be applied . Another applied creams include those which contain urea , moisturizing factors and Amylac applications .

Hi ,

Thanks for writing in.

Any stress mental,physical can worsen psoriasis.

You should try good moisturizer cream with shea butter and aloe vera twice daily .It is available over the counter sale.
This should help considerably.
Also methotrexate is good drug to control exacerbation of psoriasis.

Please visit a good dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis and starting on oral medications.Treatment of psoriasis should be taken for 6 months.Methotrexate has slow action but long lasting action.

Hope this helps.
