Psoriasis-consistent: Yes, your signs and symptoms are consistent with psoriasis. There are things you can do: first, manage the stress in your life. Second, eliminate known toxins such as any unnecessary drugs, including alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine. Third, eat an anti-inflammatory diet with plenty of greens and omega-3 oils. There are also better medications available. See a rheumatologist to discuss those.
