    Psoriasis is not curable, but it can be managed well with medications in most people. Topical treatments include salicylic acid, steroids, calcipotriene, and retinoids. Phototherapy (light therapy) is effective in many people. Some respond well in sunlight while others choose to use PUVA or UVB treatment. Medications and natural treatments, such as Dead Sea salts or fish oil, can sometimes also help with psoriasis.
