Asalaam o alaikum. As your psoriasis is progressing do have a visit to a nearest dermatologist as you may be needing some drugs to eat for controlling psoriasis.

Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes red, flaky, crusty patches of skin covered with silvery scales.
These patches normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but can appear anywhere on your body. Most people are only affected with small patches. In some cases, the patches can be itchy or sore.
It can start at any age, but most often develops in adults under 35 years old. The condition affects men and women equally.
The severity of psoriasis varies greatly from person to person.
Psoriasis is a long-lasting (chronic) disease that usually involves periods when you have no symptoms or mild symptoms, followed by periods when symptoms are more severe.

Why it happens?
People with psoriasis have an increased production of skin cells.
Skin cells are normally made and replaced every three to four weeks, but in psoriasis this process only lasts about three to seven days. The resulting build-up of skin cells is what creates the patches associated with psoriasis.
Psoriasis can run in families, although the exact role that genetics plays in causing psoriasis is unclear.
Many people's psoriasis symptoms start or become worse because of a certain event, known as a "trigger". Possible triggers of psoriasis include an injury to your skin, throat infections and using certain medicines.
The condition isn't contagious, so it can't be spread from person to person.

Treating Psoriasis
There's no cure for psoriasis, but a range of treatments can improve symptoms and the appearance of skin patches.
In most cases, the first treatment used will be a topical treatment.
Topical treatments are creams and ointments applied to the skin.

Psoriasis is like having diabetes. Iski treatment mojood hai per koi cure nai hai. You have to manage and maintain your skin. Jild ka khayal rakhenge toh kabhi problem nai hogi... agar khayal na kiya toh pareshani hogi. Extreme dryness hai. So moisturise well. There are chances ye bilkul theek hojaye, so don't lose hope. Shifa dene wali zaat toh sirf Allah ki hai. Aur zarya hum mein se koi doctor bun jata hai. :)
