Hello, does anyone know any shampoos that will help with psoriasis. My head is completely covered and is constantly itching. Thank you

Head & shoulders
Clinically proven solutions
Think it’s helped me
Try T gel
Also read up on apple cider vinegar / scalp psoriasis
All the best.

I found that Alphosyl and T-gel helped my scalp psoriasis in general. Initially the intense itching was helped by Alphacade PSO shampoo.
Many people have also had good results from Capasal Therapeutic shampoo. My GP prescribed this for me, but I found it did not do much in my particular case.
A coal-tar topical treatment called Cocois (or Sebco - it is the same thing) also works well for many people's scalp. It can be bought over the counter or prescribed. It is not a shampoo, but a treatment for the scalp.

Hi beccammotley I found head and shoulders to make mine psoriasis worse in fact t gel actually didn't work for me either I've had psoriasis since I was 15 now I'm 27 , my psoriasis in my scalp compleatly cleared by using benovate a scale application proscribed to me by the doctor's I couldn't believe it actually cleared it up but then psoriasis came back in various different parts of my body but not my scalp. I've recently started getting psoriasis in my ears. Patches are just appearing almost everyday

50%-ish psoriasis coverage, scalp, elbows, shoulders, back, stomach, calves, toes
Scalp was where my psoriasis first appeared when I was 19 before it started appearing in other places. No special shampoo ever worked for me, the thing that did work best when my scalp was at it's worst was Calcipotriol solution (Vitamin D).
Nowadays I do still have scalp psoriasis and it's in and around the ears too as well as many other places. My skin has changed / evolved over the years to the point where my scalp psoriasis looks quite flat and it's nowhere near as scaly and flaky as it used to be. It's probably reasonably close to resembling "normal" skin now..even moreso in the summer months.

The best thing I have tried is cold pressed coconut oil from lidl which I melt and rub onto my scalp. Never put in on your face as doing so made me look like a burns victim. It keeps this scales down and reduces the itching. However I’m now focusing on healing my gut with blueberries it’s day 1 but let’s hope it works 🤞

there is almost no link between psoriasis and diet by the way, but I used dovobet (vitamin d and steroid) for 4 weeks its a real pain to do every day but worth it because my scalp psoriasis has been gone for around 3 months and also I put the dovobet now on every now and again

I use LUSH soak and float to reduce the cover on my scalp and absolutely can't use head and shoulder or T-gel, both destroy my scalp. This is possibly due to having sensitive skin as well maybe, however, I can bleach my hair to my scalp if I grin and bear the pain, its actually really good exfoliation...
21 y/a with psoriasis for 10 years, scalp psoriasis is scaly with open sores.

I’ve got guttate psoriasis over my back, chest, arms, legs and scalp. I bought a little jar of coconut oil from Holland & barrett yesterday (£1.00) and massaged it all over including round my hairline and into my scalp. My skin is a little less itchy but there is a real improvement on my scalp and hairline and the scales have greatly reduced. I’m going to carry on with it as it’s the best it’s been for nearly 2 months. I’m also eating 40 blueberries per day and have cut out red meat and dairy. These forums are brilliant for natural options.

I have had on my scalp for 10 years and tried at least 30 shampoos and treatments, prescribed and not. . None (except the benovate lotion, but I am not using that for the rest of my life) ) had any effect on the itching or flakiness. I have been ‘cowashing’ my hair for the last year., using only a sulphate free conditioner. Has not made it worse!
In the last few weeks i have been on a nightshade free, low refined sugar and no alcohol diet (on top of GF and no cow) and applying neat Listerine mouthwash (original) to my hair after washing. I got this from Paganos book. At last the itching is less and the scalp is slowly smoothing out and flaking only about 20% of what it did. It’s not been overnight. I am also seeing some reduction in patches on my elbows hand and sole of my foot
