Hello there...I can understand your concern. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition. It usually exacerbates during winters. So keep using a emollient regularly during winters to prevent it's recurrences. Food has a minimal role in its recurrence. By fermented foods, they usually means curds and pickle. But you need not completely avoid it as food play very little role in its pathogenesis.
