For scalp psoriasis I use a generic Scalpicin on my scalp while still in the shower. I put conditioner in my hair and on my scalp, and then I squirt Scalpicin on the areas that are the worst and leave it for 3 to 5 minutes. I then rinse. Since I have started doing this, I have had zero itching and very little flaking. I still have some build up, but it is so much better. I also use Dermarest shampoo.

After trying every possible treatment I got to know if Salcura Dermaspray intensive. This cleared the thick scaly scalp that I had. Now I use it only on and off, then I use Bio Oil on scalp after a bath. Thankfully I am free of scales now.

After 35 years, I have finally treated my scalp psoriasis with psoriasis shampoo from natural skin remedies. It is really effective! I can now put dark clothes without anticipating people's views on them.

I have had psoriasis all my life, I am 57. My scalp is the worst affected. I have tried most things, now my hair is so dry and splitting, and itching terribly. I keep chopping my hair. The doctor told me to shave my head but I am scared to do that; I worry what people will say about me.
