For my scalp psoriasis I have tried shampoo which has coal tar. Secondly I have taken tablet which is Asset 25 mg but when the treatment was completed again scalp psoriasis came back, a thin layer regrows daily. The doctor recommends me again to start the same treatment.

Corticosteroids are effective for scalp psoriasis.

I've tried the betamethasone cream. It lessens the scaling, but it turns back as soon as my hair grows.
