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.
