In additional to using topical products, can taking vitamin a supplement help with acne and psoriasis ?

There are very good treatments that work for psoriasis and would use them first. Beware of supplements as those who sell them do not have to prove they are either safe or effective. They often have stuff in them you may not want. Viagra, narcotics, licorice etc. See and be guided by a Dermatologist.
