In brief: Sometimes

There needs to be more research but there is evidence showing that those who drink alcohol regularly have a greater risk of psoriasis, and many who have psoriasis & psoriatic arthritis note that their symptoms flare with alcohol use and improve when they avoid it; but this likely is not true for everyone who has psoriasis.
