Hi @bio, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. While we’re backed by Mayo, we’re a community forum of members such as yourself who try to provide answers or encouragement for other each other. But we’re not medical professionals so we can’t diagnose conditions or offer treatments.

You’re a person of few words. Have you been diagnosed with psoriasis? Was this just recently or has it been ongoing for a while?

Wondering if you have any other underlying conditions which might be contributing to your condition such as arthritis?

There are several types of psoriasis and locations on the body where the symptoms appear. Do you have a specific name for your type? It might help other members respond with some helpful information for you.

How about medications. Are you currently on any type of treatment? Some members have gotten good results in remission from Stelara or methotrexate. Have you tried either of these two meds?
