Your psoriasis and the causes of your flares are unique to you. If you want clearer skin, you need to figure out what makes your psoriasis worse so you can avoid it.

Start by keeping a psoriasis diary. Note when your psoriasis symptoms flare and details such as sources of stress, changes in your medicines, recent illnesses and even the weather. Look for connections between your flares and daily variables. Consider using a smartphone app to help you track symptoms and what brings them on.
