Can I Do Microneedling or Even a Hair Transplant Preferably an Fue with My Psoriasis?

I have psoriasis on my scalp. Do you think it is safe to microneedle? I don’t have psoriasis on my hairline, where i would do most of the microneedling (NW3 now). I’m very inclined to start microneedling, but afraid it might result in new psoriasis spots. Also, how about FUE? I read it might be problematic for psoriasis. Currently torn between the 2 options. 

I wouldn’t recommend that you do it, considering the Psoriasis, because of the risks associated with repeated trauma for you can make your psoriasis worse. I have done hair transplant (FUE included) on people with psoriasis and provided that it was not in the recipient area– it was not a problem.
