I have never had psoriasis and I don't know if Phytolacca is a remedy for it. There are many online research tools where you can look up individual remedies and see what their uses are. As you are probably already aware, self-prescribing homeopathic remedies, especially for a condition as potentially complicated as psoriasis, can be tricky. An experienced homeopath is your best bet. The thing is that homeopathy does not "squish" the symptoms as does allopathy. In other words ones size does not fit all. I could go on for hours but the best is for you to do your homework and find a good practitioner. Psoriasis is a crazy condition. I had severe eczema on both my hands for almost 20 years. A good herbalist, a trained homeopath, and lots of detox finally rid me of the condition. I feel for you! Please don't give up. Mainstream medicine does not have the answers other than to use steroid creams etc. The skin is the largest organ of elimination and it is trying to tell you something. I wish you the best of luck. (One thing that helped me was to have all my silver fillings removed... there was a lot of mercury in my system.... but as I said, I did all this under the supervision of various providers and I always had hope that it would go away.... ) Be sure you have a good diagnosis from your dermatologist too, so you know exactly what you are dealing with. Create a healing team around you and work with them. The bible for homeopathic providers is the Materia Medica and Repertory. You will find it a mind boggling resource but again, do find a competent homeopath in your area. This was a big answer but you happened to land on someone whose family had the first homeopathic pharmacy in the United States.

Not the reason I purchased it to be honest and as I am not a doctor I would not give any medical advice, am sure you can research the symptoms it matches and get better indicators.
