Hello,

Welcome to healthcare magic.

From your description, you do not seem to be having psoriasis.

It sounds more like an infective etiology which could be furuncles or an abscess. zyou need to take a course of antibiotics like amoxicillin or cephalexin. You could also try hot compressess for symptomatic relief.

Psoriasis presents with painless and sometimes itchy scaly patches on the knees, elbows, back and scalp. They are not painful and do not ooze.

Hope this helps you.

Take care.
