Scalp psoriasis

Hi! Can anyone recommend anything for scalp psoriasis? I’ve tried lotions from the GP, various shampoos, nothing works. It’s embarrassing when I head is so flakey, any ideas would be appreciated x

Betnovate scalp application or similar works, but mine keeps coming back, can't wait for summer when sun helps my scalp & liaisons on face until winter then back on the above.

Hi, everyone is different and things will work differently for each person! I use Polytar shampoo on my scalp and I wash my hair everyday. If using conditioner make sure only on the ends of your hair. During the day or night use a sweet almond oil on your scalp and leave for as long as possible. Try not to pick or scratch. I learnt the hard way and now have scarring. I have also been prescribed Enstilar Foam and this has worked for me.

Hi guys . For someone who has suffered with years of terrible scalp psoriasis I thought I’d share this to hopefully help others I’ve used dovobet for years. Does the job but I was having to reapply every 3 days. Trying to get it out of my thick hair has been a nightmare! I joined the hype and bought some rosemary oil ( nature spell) for hair growth purposes . Comes with the handiest applicator and smells great. Used it a couple times a week and noticed my psoriasis drastically improved . The flakes are minimal. I’ve gone from using dovobet consistently for years to not having to use it for nearly 6 months! It’s honestly changed my life ! I remember giving absolutely anything a go so I really do hope it helps others ( leave on overnight and washes out in one go ) Thanks and fingers crossed xx
