Psoriasis on my face

Psoriasis on my face

I have had psoriasis for 20 years on my scalp but the last 4-6 weeks it has appeared just under my nose and the sides of my eyes... Very red and sore which is upsetting me so much. What do people recommend as a) a good face wash and cream and b) what's best to treat it? TIA x
