    Good evening. Sorry about that. Are you sure it's psoriasis? Have you seen a dermatologist to confirm the diagnosis? Psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory skin disease. It can be hereditary. But you need to see a dermatologist to confirm it

    Ok Sir. Sorry about that. Yes I would have suggested topical corticosteroids but you are already on it. That is all I can prescribe here according to the rules of the platform. This is a chronic inflammatory disease. My advice would be to keep going for the dermatologist appointments. Some other drugs will be prescribed for your daughter. Take care
