In brief: Cortisone creams

Psoriasis is common and sometimes runs in families, it be very minimal, with just a few patches, thick nails, or dandruff, or it can be very severe with thick red areas on the scalp, and other parts of the skin.
If it is mild, you can try a Hydrocortisone cream, moisturizers and sun exposure until you tan. If it is very severe, than you need to a dermatologist for prescription medicines.
