In brief: Treat psoriasis

Treating the psoriasis usually will help the inflammatory portion of the psoriatic arthritis.
If you are still having trouble with the arthritis, there are many options for medicines that can decrease your body's inflammatory response which then will give you relief. See your doctor, and if you aren't getting adequate relief, consider a rheumatology consult.

In brief: your nutrition!

Often this condition responds really well to changes in diet.
The two most common ingredients that cause food reactivity and autoimmune reactions are gluten (most grains) and casein (dairy). Try eliminating both for a couple of months. This is a simple suggestion but not easy as these ingredients are in many processed foods we eat daily. Also recommend dr. Lipski's book "digestive wellness.".
