Albert 2014 Evidence that an exacerbation of psoriasis is frequently associated with lithium treatment. More studies needed.
Brenaut, 2013 Evidence that alcohol consumption is greater in psoriasis patients than in the general population. However, there is not enough evidence to establish whether alcohol consumption is a risk factor for psoriasis. More research needed.
