In brief: Control, not cure

There is as yet no cure for psoriasis, but we have lots of options for controlling it.
"before it spreads" suggests that you only have it on localized areas, which means topical steroid creams and vitamin d derivatives may be all you need. If not, there are ultraviolet light treatments, oral drugs like soriatane, methotrexate, and cyclosporine, and biologic drugs like enbrel, humira, and stelara (ustekinumab).
