What is psoriasis?

Topical steroids are usually prescribed by the medical doctors and the dermatologists to reduce symptoms and skin scaling.
Naturopathic doctors look for the root cause of the problem, such as searching for certain triggers that may aggravate the lesions, looking for potential causes such as poor skin health or stress.
