There are many treatments and the point in medicine is to put it into remission but there is no "cure" per se.
light therapy is very helpful and I notice right away that you have only tried a couple of meds

I have not answered your question yet
There is no cure in regular medicine
but remission
Light therapy
of various types
Even ecimer laser
Various topical medications such as retinoids.
Many oral medications such as retinoids, cyclosporin, methotrexate, hydrozyurea, immune modulating agents, and thioguanine.

I have also completely resolved psoriasis for years..apparently in permanent remission, with classical homeopathy.

good luck
