I have had psoriasis since I was little. No treatment yet has gotten rid of it and now it is spreading all over. Any suggested methods/medicines?

In brief: There are good ones

Depending on what your dermatologists have given you there are many medications: topical, light therapy, oral medication and injection or infusion medications .
Some of the new biologic medications can do a great job, but there are side effects and precautions and you need to be carefully evaluated before these medications can be used. They are excellent therapies.
