AHA/BHA body lotion for psoriasis

I have some psoriasis plaques on my forearms which I am trying to keep under control. My current regime involves exfoliating in the shower with a Salux cloth, then applying a glycolic toner (the Superdrug 5% one) and unscented Child’s Farm lotion. It does seem to respond well to the glycolic acid so I’m looking for a body lotion containing this. I will get through quite a lot so budget is a consideration. Any recommendations?

I have the same problem, also on my knees. I'm using Ren aha lotion at he moment and it has helped a little. I found glycolic did nothing.

Thank you! I’ll have a look at that. I get on very well with the lactic acid in Good Genes but I’d bankrupt myself if I tried to treat my psoriasis with it.
