Psoriasis has no known cause ie genetic etc. There are many types too. Go to a proper dermatologist for diagnosis and treatment. This can be a very serious condition requiring treatment by experts.
There are numerous treatments available. There are topical treatments if the disease is small areas. Laser therapy also for smaller amounts of body surface area affected. Light box treatments can be used for large body surface area. Larger plaques may require oral treatments or biological therapy. See your dermatologist to help you decide what’s best.

Depends on the type and how widespread. Small areas, cream, topicals and light treatment. Larger areas with systemic treatments. Please visit your dermatologist to get more recommendations and for your yearly skin exams.
