The dry patches of skin you get with psoriasis can be itchy and uncomfortable, but the right treatment plan can help.

Your doctor will likely suggest creams, lotions, foams, sprays, solutions, and ointments. These are called "topicals," meaning you put them directly on your skin or scalp.

A number of products are available. You can get some over the counter (OTC) at the drugstore, but for others, you'll need a prescription. It may take time to find what works best for you.
