In brief: Many options

Depends on severity and if you have joints involved.
If mild, usually prescription topical cortisones are first line. If mod-severe then consider biological injections such as Enbrel (etanercept) or ultraviolet light. You need to see a derm that is known for psoriasis treatment.
