@debjaan There’s no cure for psoriasis. But treatment can help you feel better. You may need topical, oral, or body-wide (systemic) treatments. Even if you have severe psoriasis, there are good ways to manage your flare-ups. You may be able to get rid of your symptoms completely. These are drugs you rub directly on your skin. Along with a good moisturizer, they’re usually the first thing your doctor will suggest, especially for mild to moderate psoriasis. There are over-the-counter (OTC) and prescription options. Topical treatments for psoriasis come as ointments, creams, or foam and include: Steroid creams. These slow down immune cells in your skin. They can ease swelling and redness. Mild steroid creams are available over the counter. You’ll need a prescription from your doctor for something stronger. Steroids come with side effects and shouldn’t be used on sensitive areas like your face or genitals. They can burn or thin the skin. Use them exactly the way your doctor tells you.
