Psoriasis is a hereditary, immune-mediated illness that can affect the skin, joints, or both. The condition frequently requires the treatment of a wide group of specialists with a variety of specialties. Numerous difficulties are presented by psoriasis, such as its high prevalence, chronicity, disfigurement, disability, and related comorbidities. Natural treatment of psoriasis can be provided by flavonoids and furanocoumarins. Flavonoids, a group of chemical compounds with various phenolic structures, are found in a wide variety of foods, including fruits, vegetables, cereals, bark, roots, stems, flowers, tea, and wine. The health benefits of these natural compounds are well known, and efforts are being made to extract the components known as flavonoids. Furanocoumarin is a subgroup of coumarins with phenolic compounds. It can be divided into two groups: linear generic name psoralens, which include psoralen, xanthotoxin, and bergapten, and angular generic name angelicins, which include sphondin and pimpinellin. The most important plant source is psoralen, which has been used for generations in traditional medicine to treat psoriasis and vitiligo. The creation of alternative psoralen molecules that do not generate the bifunctional adducts that serve as the foundation for DNA crosslinking is one of the future directions for further improving psoriasis treatment. This article focuses on flavonoid and furanocoumarin research and development trends, modes of action, functions, and applications.

Keywords: Psoriasis, flavonoids, furanocoumarins, skin, psoralen, DNA crosslinking.
