Hi tracy,

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.

A visit to dermatologist will be helpful for assessment of severity and proper treatment of the condition.

Hope this helps.
