This disorder causes skin cells to multiply at an abnormally faster rate. The patients depict an unpredictable course of remission and relapse; winter aggravation is common. Conventional treatment involves application of topical ointments, steroids, anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive drugs. Homoeopathy is a popular alternative from of treatment in this type of skin conditions. The person is treated as a whole and a suitable constitutional remedy is prescribed, so that there is very less chance of relapse of symptoms. The patient’s general condition, mental status along with the symptoms of psoriasis is considered during finding the similimum remedy.
