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. Kindly see a dermatologist for a treatment plan.
Next Steps
Your dermatologist will decide a treatment plan for you after a consultation.
Health Tips
I cannot exactly predict the nature of the disease as many a times it varies but you should take it seriously and treat based on current medical literature.
