Good day!
Psoriasis is a complex multi etiologic trouble and it needs a lot a lot of care and expertise of dermatologists and cosmeticians with the management that involve drugs, light therapy, stress reduction, climatotherapy, and various adjuncts such as sunshine, moisturizers, and salicylic acid..
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) is developing a series of recommendations under the umbrella title, Guidelines of Care for the Management of Psoriasis and Psoriatic Arthritis. and the minimum duration in any is no less than 3 to 6 months.
It is a chronic problem and need a dermatologist and rheumatologist with no such thing as prompt relief or instances of no coming back.
I am sorry for the inconvenience but this is the truth. Seek the mentioned specialists for further management.
Hope it helps
