In brief: Other medications

Psoriasis is often controlled with topical steroids such as Olux and oral immune suppression like neoral (cyclosporine).
However, a certain portion of psoriasis patients will not improve enough to these and may require another group of immune suppressors called tnf inhibitors. These are injectable medications that can be expensive and carry some risks, so you need to discuss the options with your dermatologist.
