Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition which also is an autoimmune disease, belonging to a group of condi­tions where the immune system is over­active and attacks its own cells and tissues. Normally skin cells are formed at the bottom of the outer layer of our skin. The cells go through a cycle of change, moving upwards through the layers to the surface of the skin where they die and are shed within a period of three to four weeks. In psoriasis this process is speeded up and cells can go through this cycle within three to four days. This causes thickening of the skin and its characteristic scaly appearance. Psoriasis affects mainly the skin and nails, but in six per cent of cases it is accompanied by inflammation of joints, affecting mainly fingers, toes and the spine and is called psoriatic arthritis.
causes of psoriasis are still not entirely clear, although in 30 per cent of patients there is a family history of the condition. Certain factors can trig­ger the onset of the skin eruptions including streptococcal throat infections, particular medicines and injury to the skin, and emotional factors, such as stress or situations of trauma, shock and bereavement. Those trigger factors can be important for the homeopathic practitioner as it might indicate which remedy might be appropriate for that particular person.psoriasis may increase during pregnancy as steriods cannot be given during pregnancy.
Next Steps
you should meet homeopathic physician and start up with homeopathy treatment. if you are planning for pregnancy you should definitely shift to homeopathy as it safe and medications wont cause any issues during pregnancy
Thanks

Psoriasis is an obstinate and chronic disease. There is no shortcut to its cure.
The length of treatment varies form case to case, depending of the following factors:
Duration of Psoriasis ,Areas affected. Affection of scalp and nails takes longer.Extent of spread (Psoriasis only on skin is easier to treat. Joint affection (Psoriatic Arthritis) is relatively difficult to treat.). Previous medication (Extensive use of oral cortisone may delay the course of treatment). General health and associated diseases..
Homeopathic treatment for Psoriasis has been found to be extremely effective.
