Several treatment modalities are in existence in modern system of medicine; however they have limitations due to their side effects due to long time use. Considering this, search for new safe therapeutic regime in psoriasis is going on. The present paper presents some of the promising evidence based Ayurvedic therapeutic approaches in the management of psoriasis.
