Hi there,
thanks for posting here.
If you have a reddish rash with white powdery scales on it, it can be psoriasis. the reason for psoriasis is not known exactly but some factors like trauma and infection can contribute to it.
You have to use good moisturisers to keep the skin soft.
Food and psoriasis - no relation.
Take care.
Hope this helps you.
Regards,
Dr Shilpa Bhat. M.D dermatology
