u can see a doctor to confirm if you want.. but they will just say, "you have psoraisis, here is a script for some cream"...
you might as well just try the cocoa butter lotion and see if it works for you. use it lots. and try the milk thistle if you can. i found that it works really well on clearing up any skin problems... might take a few weeks, but its not bad for you either way, so it can't hurt.
(ps-i am in no way suggesting that seeing a doctor is not a good idea. its up to you.. this is just from my experience)
