In brief: Consider

Being seen by provider, while psoriasis is not cured, it can be controlled.
One med to consider is protopic.

Psoriasis doesn't usually cause lumps like you describe. May have been a cyst that got infected. See a dermatologist if it doesn't resolve. As an aside, psoriasis is treatable but cannot be permanently "cured".
