Psoriasis treatment in India.
2 years ago I tried a treatment of methotrexate+ folic acid suggested by a doctor. While it did reduce my lesions for the time being, it made me physically weak so I had to discontinue. And now my Psoriasis is at its worst, covering almost all of my back and my legs and scalp. It's also getting larger in my facial region. An American friend of mine with Psoriasis told me about "Biologics" and asked to me consult Dermatologists about them. Are Biologics available in India? Because I have seen how great they are in treating my friend.

Hello dear. Ofcourse they are available in India. While it's a very costly option, you will have to visit a hospital setting to get your injections. Apart from MTX, there are other medicines too which can clear your psoriasis and bring it under control. Unfortunately, there is no permanent cure for psoriasis as of now. Not even the super costly biologics.
Next Steps
Do consult online for treatment
