There are some suggestions that non pharmacological therapies like acupuncture may have some role in improving psoriasis symptoms. It may work to control stress associated with the disease. There could be the risk of bruising, pain, infection and further injuries in case your treatment goes wrong. You must be aware of one phenomenon associated with psoriasis that is called Koebner phenomenon; it suggests that psoriatic plaque may start in previously non affected areas in cases of skin injury/prick. Since acupuncture involves lots of trauma to skin; there is a potential chance that psoriasis may get aggravated with acupuncture.
