Itch, coping, treatment
Scalp psoriasis friends, how do you best deal with The Prickle? That sensation of fire and burn? 🔥

Sarah I used to use a medication that worked wonders. Can't post it here but you are more than welcome to private message me. It worked like a charm really quickly too, but it is a steroid which I'm not a fan of.

I unfortunately have to agree with Susan. Having had scalp psoriasis for about 15 years and scratched like a maniac, I’ve started using very sparingly a steroid cream too. I’ve tried so many shampoos and creams on my scalp with no success. The steroid cream seems to be working. I’m hoping that if I can calm the scalp enough so that I don’t scratch it’ll heal finally.

Hey Sarah :)
Same as Rosey, coal tar shampoo has healed my P. I vary between head and shoulders, horse shampoo and once a week coal tar to help prevent Scalp P and keeping flakes away. The horse shampoo helped for hair growth. :)

Thanks all! I've got my first scalp flare in a few months, it's down to getting a cold. It isn't awful but the burn cones on around 8pm each night this past couple of nights. I think it's just the skin drying out and tightening up at night time.

What and where do you get horse shampoo? My daughter has tried so many things but currently apple cider. I’m concerned about loss of hair around temple

Hi Vicki, I buy it from my local chemist. It does help but using it too often can dry your hair out too. I only wash my hair occasionally with it. I'm using Prosana hair products now and it strengthens the hair as well. Good luck and I hope you find something that works for your daughter. :)

I've been using Trader Joe's Head To Toe Balm on my scalp lesions and it really calms things down.

I've had P on scalp on and off for about 40 years. Coal tar based shampoo works for me. I don't use any prescribed ointments/creams now. What I haven't had any success with is P on my feet - I developed it on my feet about 3 years ago.

With my scalp psoriasis, i use sebco ointment which gets let on overnight and washed out the next day following scraping all the death out. Shampoo i use after that is capasal. And then again after that i use a coconut oil serum all over while its still damp.
Then childs farm unscented moisturiser round the edges of my hair style, as its a long mohawk kinda do. And sparingly the dovobet gel in the hair mass.
Usually does me good for a few days.
Sorry for the long how to reply x
