In brief: Depends

It depends on the severity and how responsive it is to treatment.
Psoriasis is a disease where the body attacks its own wrapper from within. For some folks, all it takes is some topical medicines and maybe steroids. Other folks require more powerful medications that turn down the immune system. You need to work with your doc to decide what works best in your case.
