Thanks for writing in.
Psoriasis is treatable condition.
A visit to dermatologist will allow proper assessment of severity of psoriasis and prescription medicines.You can take tab.cetirizine once a day for itching.
Also you can apply good quality moisturizer twice/thrice a day for decreasing the white scaling.
