Hello welcome to 'Ask A Doctor' service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advise.
For jaundice Symptomatic management done mainly and proper rest is needed. Ursodeoxycholic acid daily can be prescribed for dissolving cholesterol in bile. Fatty foods and alcohol should be restricted in jaundice. Sugar cane juice and apple juice can be taken more. Ayurvedic treatment can be taken but it has to be taken for long time to see significance improvement. As a allopathy doctor I suggest you to consult gastroenterologist for examination and dermatologist for management of jaundice and psoriasis.
Hope I have solved your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
