In brief: Sun, medications

Sunshine helps but you have to be cautious because of risk of skin cancer.
There are a variety of topical medications, topical corticosterids, vitamin d, local compounds that can help. There medications like methotrexate, biologics that are injected like etanercecept, adalimumab, golimumab and infused like Infliximab that can be used. You need a carefully screen for safety with these.

In brief: Steriods

Usually we start with some type of steriod.
Depending on the body location we pick a strength most of the time a strong potency steriod is needed. This steriod is then used for a length of time til the psoriasis lessens.
