Hi, Thanks for posting your query

I understand your concern regarding psoriasis . I will try to answer your query

Psoriasis is autoimmune disorder , which means body's immune system starts working against ones own cells instead of foreign substances in particular areas . In psoriais this results in increased formation and shedding of skin in the form of scales.

psoriasis is not curable but symptom free period can be achieved with medication and supressive therapy

In your case since it is mild you might remain symptom free for longer duration. The following may help:
Keep your skin hydrated throughout the year .
Avoid cold, dry climates.
Avoid scratching and picking skin, and avoid skin injuries (cuts or scrapes).
Avoid stress and anxiety.
Infection like sore throat may cause guttate psoriasis so try to avoid, take early treatment if infection occurs
Aviod Alcohol and smoking
Certain medicines can cause flaring of lesions , so inform your doctor about psoriasis

Hope this solves your query
