Emollient/moisturiser recommendation

Posted Fri 1 May 2020 1.19pm by Kay

Hi - first time on here to ask a question

I have scalp psoriasis and have been using Dovobet gel.

The consultant recommended using an emollient /moisturiser in between treatments but didn't recommend any particular one to get.

Would appreciate any help with this as I would like to moisturise to calm the itching and tightness. Thanks

HI Kay

I have had scalp psoriasis for over 30 years and have used various treatments including the dovobet gel . I used dermol 500 once a week and just rubbed it into my scalp left it on for a couple of hours and then washed it off , you can do it as often as you want but will need to wash it off

Hope you get some relief

Please have a look at this - I have read that it helps with scalp psoriasis. I have used it on my 'feet' pustular psoriasis - I try anything :(

Cocois is for the treatment of dry scaly skin disorders of the scalp such as psoriasis, eczema, dandruff and other inflammatory conditions causing irritation and scaliness.
