In brief: Try these

1. Moisturize skin using unscented creams or ointments.
Avoid lotions & gels. They contain alcohol that drys skin & stings going on. 2. Bathe in warm water - it's preferable to showering. Try some bath salts. 3. Get some but not too much sunshine 4. Add vitamin d if your levels are low 5. Quit smoking. You will still need the help of a great dermatologist.

In brief: Psoriasis

Psoriasis treatments fall into 3 categories: topical (applied to the skin) – mild to moderate psoriasis phototherapy (light, usually ultraviolet, applied to the skin) – moderate to severe psoriasis systemic (taken orally or by injection or infusion) – moderate, severe or disabling psoriasis while each of these therapies is effective, there are also drawbacks.

In brief: Diet

5 per cent of people with psoriasis are allergic to wheat according to a study in the british journal of dermatology.
If wheat is avoided in sensitive individuals psoriasis will clear completely in 3 months. No herb or vitamin is consistently useful in psoriasis although a few people will respond to fumaric acid used in europe etc.
