It is very important to understand that sun exposure should be done in moderation that too in early part of the morning when the sunlight is not too harsh. Overexposure to harsh sunlight may result in the trigger of psoriasis.
Take a pledge ” I will reduce overexposure to the sun.”

Adding Homeopathy to your treatment protocol
Psoriasis, while appearing externally, is an internal disease. The faulty immune system along with genetic predispositions are to blame. Needless to say, the disease is deep-seated and calls for well planned deep acting medicines. Conventional treatment, usually with interleukins or with methotrexate often contain (they call ‘manage’) the symptoms of the disease but cannot cure the disease.
