Hi Bellavita- have u found any relief from your scalp psoriasis? I got shingles and Dr. said calamine lotion. I put it on the sores on my head w a q tip and it dried them up!! Use good normal shampoo. Redkin from salon. Other shampoos for psoriasis damaged my hair.

I found this in another forum. I'm going to try it:

Nothing sold in a convenient store, all that is garbage.

No beef or cured pork.

No white bread.

Coffee that’s diluted with an inch of milk. When I’m at home, I use coconut milk.

IPAs and hard ciders are the only alcohols that don’t trigger my psoriasis. I have read online other people who say IPAs do not cause outbreaks either. If I drink a Bud or Coors or whiskey, my skin gets bad immediately.

I drink one to two cups of detox tea a day.

4. Supplements:
Vitamin B and C

Flaxseed oil

Vitamin D

5. Shampoos
NEVER let a shampoo with fragrance touch your scalp. This includes Head and Shoulders.

Buy MG217 tar shampoo. Do not buy the generics, spend the extra money.

Buy Dermarest and its generics

Alternate between those two shampoos throughout the week. My scalp is completely clear now.

If you can get avocado oil, cover your scalp with it and leave it on for an hour, then wash out. Your scalp will feel really good after that.

6. Body Lotions:
Nothing with fragrance or alcohol.

Use only Aveeno and Eucerin. Their generics are okay.

Apply Eucerin or a generic form three times a day.

Psoriasin Gel, apply on an area three times a day. But do not go into the sunlight after, or that part of your body will look like a zombie.

I've had psoriasis on my head and nose since i was about 18. I've treated it with hydrocortisone cream for decades.

i suspect it's related to a food additive. I've had periods of remission when I've ate healthy.

My husband has extreme psoriasis on his face and scalp. We've tried several products but dermalmd psoriasis serum has helped more than I could have imagined.

U guys I have had this my whole life. What the doctors won't tell you is that is u use medicated pharmaceuticals and miss some days it will cause it to come back with a vengeance. Also getting some sun on it will do u some wonders. If u have it building up scales in your hair get u some bio oil (walmart) and a baby med syringe and put it in ur scalp for a few hours before u wash your hair. Wear a hat lol. Work it in before washing and try to slide scales off your scalp. It will make it let go and slide out with out taking your hair with it. Is it a cure?? No but I haven't had a bald spot in years. It will save your hair at least. Try natural remedies if u can because the medicated ones will make it worse the second you stop them.

I know this thread is old but poor you.

Scalp psoriasis is notoriously difficult to rid yourself of.

I have done it with diet. But even that took six months.

Natural products like diluted tea tree oil may help. Make sure you dilute it, as it is very strong. You only need a few drops literally. Say five drops in your shampoo or conditioner.

Also Manuka honey, coconut oil, aloe vera gel, and hemp seed oil could be soothing. Best to rub into your scalp at night, sleep on an old pillowcase that you don't mind staining with stickiness or oil, and wash out in the morning. Apple Cider Vinegar can help too but can also sting a bit, so don't use on patches that you have picked.

Personally I found the chemicals in most shampoo and conditioner to be terrible for scalp psoriasis. I had much relief when I swapped over to a natural shampoo.

It was more expensive for sure. But it was gentler than those harsh chemicals and artificial perfumes added to standard hair care products.

I also stopped using mouse, gel, hairspray and hot hairdryers.

When I was younger I tried the tar shampoos. They never worked and smelt awful.

Hope you all find relief soon.
