Pregnancy and Psoriasis

Patient : I am 14 weeks pregnant. About two years ago, I was diagnosed with scalp psoriasis. I have been treating my scalp psoriasis with Elocom lotion, while my small spots in the lower abdomen (in the pubic hair area) has been treated with Elocom cream. I was doing well with Elocom, not until I got pregnant and had to stop my topical treatment. My scalp psoriasis was back like before and my psoriasis in my lower abdomen is becoming worse and itchy. Kindly advise safe treatments for my condition. Thanks.
