There is no permanent cure for psoriasis irrespective of what treatment u take.. As it's autoinflamatory disorder..
But we can completely remit psoriasis with various treatment options depending on severity... As there is no cure there is chance of recurrence particularly in times of stress, heavy sinking or alcoholic drinks or surgeries or infections or sudden environmental changes...
Methotrexate is a wonder drug in severe psoriasis giving major remission although it has some risk factors which are weighed and monitored cautiously by prescribing doctor..
So nothing to worry
Psoriasis is an immune system mediated skin disease which can be brought into remission by certain medications and life style changes. Now it is well established and believed to be a multi system disorder involving joints, hearts and kidneys as well. A proper assessment to determine the severity of psoriasis and an assessment of other organ involvements is needed. Most of the patients do well if they stick to the recommendations.
