7 month old psoriasis

I think DS2 has psoriasis on his temple. When he eats its seems to irritate it, he itches like mad, cries and then can't focus on food. I've been giving him a porridge bath (oats in muslin), and am off to get some good moisturizer, but any other thoughts? Will the GP be able to give him anything that will make a real difference (that the oats and moisturizer won't?)

My advice would be to ditch all moisturisers and use good quality oils like Palmers or the new garnier ones.

I find moisturises burn me and make my skin even more sensitive.

My psoriasis advice is to leave well alone .
In theory oats should be good for the skin but,they are high in nickel and can sometimes aggravate psoriasis .
My specialist used to recommend aqueous cream only-to wash with and moisturise with. Not sure if its ok for babes .
Is it definitely psoriasis ?
Keep a food diary.

Gp can give steroid cream .
My psoriasis is not itchy once it is at the visible stage ,I wonder if it is psoriasis or if it may be infected.
