I have plaque and psoriatic arthritis. I take pain-killers seldom and anti-inflammatories. Due to my distaste for pharmaceuticals, I also try and take high doses of probiotics, Vitamin

Take probiotics, vitamin C, vitamin D, and eat anti-inflammatory diet (alkaline)

@Lee__R 

plaque psoriasis: I have this especially bad on both elbows, and left wrist about the size of a dime and on my back
inverse psoriasis:  along the belt line from hip to hip.

I also have it on both ears and chest, when i was diagnosed, the nurse practioner in dermatology  just said I have psorasis, gave me a steroid cream script (which I dont tend to use because it dont work) and left, so I tend to use A & D ointment that people use for their childrens diaper rash and coconut oil, both keep me from itching and flaking

I also have plaque psoriasis + psoriatic arthritis. I have it pretty bad on my arms, neck, and scalp. And my joints have it bad too, especially my elbows.
