Young Male Psoriasis Help

I am a 19 year old healthy male. I first discovered i had psoriasis when i was 14. I have recently had a flare up--that has covered more than 25% of my body. It is really making it hard to live my everyday life, and is making me self conscious. I went to the dermatologist today, and he put me on clobex spray and methotrexate. He took blood work and wants a tb skin test. He wants me back in two weeks and suggest humira injections. I am afraid of the side effects of these drugs, for i am only 19 years of age. Does anyone have any suggestions or know anything about this? Thanks so much...
