Topical treatment is with tar, cortisone or Dovonex=vitamin C derivate. Light treatment is an option in more severe cases. Vitamin A derivatives and methotrexate ( risk of liver damage ) can be used in more severe cases. Most patients with psoriasis can be managed by combinations of the above treatments. Psoriasis cannot be cured. See a skin specialist with experience in the treatment of psoriasis. Treatment is individualized.
