    Alposyl shampoo and e45 shampoo are a starting point. Apply to wet hair and soak for several minutes which will soften up any flakes and aid removal when the scalp is rinsed. Seek a GP. They can prescribe you with exorex lotion which can be applied to scalp. This slows down the rate of skin cell production and eases itching. If this doesn't ease the scalp psoriasis your GP on your second visit may refer you to a dermatologist who will have the ability to prescribe various stronger treatments including UVB phototherapy and topical steroid creams with salicylic acid (the steroid clears the psoriasis and the salicylic avid breaks down the flakes). If the above has no effect then your dermatologist may recommend biological treatments or drugs that dampen the immune system to stop the psoriasis patches releasing chemicals causing inflammation. These are usually reserved for the most stubborn and extreme cases. Hot weather will make your scalp psoriasis a lot more itchy. Shorter hair may help keep scalp cooler and will help with applying topical treatments. Olive oil, glycerin, are good to moisten the scalp which shall reduce itching amd help remove flakes. Even better if you soak it in your hair overnight. Most treatments that are available on shelves in stores will not really help with reducing the red appearance. This will require the help of your doctor or dermatologist.

    I'm suffering from a very itchy scalp (small red lumps), and this is causing me to scratch my scalp and pull out the scabs. I have tried everything over the counter and have even been to see my doctor but she said it isn't scalp posariasis and was unable to diagnose my problem. This has been on-going for about 4 years now and is increasingly getting worse.

    Hi, i've suffered with psoriasis since i was about 5 years old, however about 2 years ago it became itchy. My doctor put me on to a shampoo called 'polytar liquid' that delt with the itchiness. The product is not specifically for psoriasis but for ithcy, dry scalps so it may help. Your able to buy in supermarkets or at the chemist with out the need for a prescription, i hope this has helped

    I would ask to see a dermatologist as scalp psoriasis can look like little red pustules as well as flaky white patches. I have scalp psoriasis and use something called betnovate which works but thecondition never disappears for long unfortunately. Anyway get your gp to refer you to see a specialist.

    I am a 19 year old male my symptoms for nearly the past year is that i have hair loss and hair thinning but it is accompanied by a daily itch on my scalp especially on the top of my scalp and sometime it intensifies so much causes me to feel very depressed and whenever i try to relive the itch it pains. Also when my scalp is itching my scalp appears red ton the whole top of my scalp. i have been to my doctor, a dermotologist and a qualified tricologist at the institute of tricology and they all say different things to me. my dermotologist say's i have folliculitus and androgennic Alopecia but the ticologist say's that i do NOT have male pattern baldness as i am also have thinning and hair loss on the sides of my scalp and on the back but says that i have telegon effluviam. This is all well an said but they don't seem to deal with the scalp pain and tenderness that i am going through. On another note whenever there an itch there is hair loss as well, i also seem to be losing hair from my eye brows and eye lashes and my eyes seem to always itch and sting whenever i try touch them after i have touched my hair. I have also been told that my hair seems to look very crimpled as well whereby it looks unhealthy and that some hair are easily broken if thats any help. on another note when looking at my hair strands as one does when being worried about hair loss my hair is noticibly thinner near the root tip then the top og the hair strand is this normal?

    Hi, I've had scalp psoriasis for eight years. I've found the best way to cope with it is the exfoliate prior to putting on the ointment prescribed to you, yes this does feel extremely painful but it prevents flakes for the new few days before repeating the process. If you like me with very fine hair then I find it helps to back comb your hair and hair spray it to prevent the embarrassing moment when people can see it on your scalp. Hope this helps, maybe one day they'll find a cure.

    I have a 15 year old son who has developed a scalp condition which he has had for around a year, he was prescribed nizarole shampoo and when used it would clear the scaly scalp but after 2/3 days the scalp would become dirty again with fine particles. If the scalp is scratched with a fine comb it would help remove the mess from the scalp but it's never ending, the fine particles would just keep coming off, I say particles because it is not like flaky dandruff.

    that really sounds like what my son had, the scalp was growing over the hair, large scabs of dry scalp over it. What got rid of it was using diprosalic which was prescribed by a dermatologist,we did this twice a day, it is a clear liquid so no mess. What it did was softed the scalp & withing 5 weeks my son's scalp was completely clear, use this with a tar shampoo recommended by the doctor also. whenever I see new dryness appear I use the drops again. Hope this helps you.

    Ive had psorisis for about 7 years on my scalp. It started out with a little round circle of scab and then i got another one more a less at the side of it. After 7 years worth of scratching, itching, picking (which i shouldnt) its spred all over my scalp and ive got a little bit in my ears. Im affraid that if i get worse and spead on my face i will do something stupid. Is there anyone else with this problem on the scalp and what creams help the scalp as im using Synlar gel and i can only use it ever now and again due to it being steriod creme.

    where did you get the shampoo from? is this from the doctor?

    Hiya my names florrieann, i've had scalp and skin conditions all my life. I recently had a really bad scalp condition especially and they gave me alsorts to clear it, they tried me with betnovate, polytar, and aquareous shower gel for it, none of it work. My local GP then refered me to the skin and scalp base at the hospital and they tried me with synular which is made to clear any kind of scalp conditions up. When i used synular i became more confident with my scalp because it stopped flaking and bleeding. if you ask your GP about it i'm sure they will prescribe you with it. GOOD LUCK!!

    Hi I live in Norway, and have had kid eczema all my life. What I'm struggling with now, especially with the cold weather, is a very itchy, dry, and flaky scalp. At the moment I am trying to treat it with a Seborrhoeic dermatitis shampoo, but this just seems to make my scalp more flaky which shows horridly up on my dark work uniform >:( Could I use my steroid cream on my scalp over night and rinse the day after? would that get rid of the eczema on my scalp? (Dermovat 0,05%, Clobetasol, propion)

    I've had Psoriasis since I was little, its mainly worse on my scalp and I only get it on my body when I'm stressed. I've been with my boyfriend for 3 years and it doesn't bother him. Its a bit embarrassing when it flakes off from my scalp because people think I have dandruff. My Mum and 2 out of my 3 sisters have it but I'm the only one who has it on my scalp. When I was younger I used to scratch it so much that it bled, but I don't really notice the itching any more. It does go away, but every couple of years it will come back really bad. I've just grown to accept it as a part of life as all the treatments are time consuming and all the scalp treatments I've tried never work.

    I have had lichen simplex in my scalp since I was 12, I'm now 28. I have been using Elocon scalp lotion which is a steroid and it pretty much clears it up, but eventually it flares up again possibly due to stress. I'm glad it's hidden but I always have flakes from itching.just wondered if anyone else has the condition in their scalp and if they can recommend anything?

    i also have what i think is foliculitis for at least 15 years but unlike most people commenting here i have this in my scalp. i have lost hair in the middle of my head and it itches a lot and sometimes bleeds. I've tried antibiotics which work a little for a month and then goes back to how it was. i recently seen a young afro-caribean girl on embarrassing bodies for teens.she had treatment done to her scalp but i wonder if my scalp condition will be that simple to cure like her scalp was. If anyone can remember the treatment that that was used on her a treatment that WILL work can they let me know

    I have Problems with my scalp. It is all on my scalp and doesnt go onto my face. Its not covering my scalp but it is in random areas and it just looks like dry skin. But im not sure it is because its in massive clumps. It may just be large amounts of dandruff, but i constantly use products to prevent dandruff and it has no effect. I think my friends think i have nits though because when i scratch it it comes off my scalp in large clumps and remains in my hair. but i definately do not have nits. What can i do about this?

    that doesn't sound like nits at all. sounds more like psoriasis or dermatitis. i know how upsetting it is to hear others say its nits and such but they dont know what you are going through. Ive had psoriasis since i was around 11, im now 19 and still have people who tell me "urgh you have nits/dandruff/scabs, keep away from me...blah blah blah," so ignore them as they aren't good enough to class as friends if they are hurting your feelings like that. go to your local gp, and they can actually tell you what is happening, and if need be, prescribe you something that will help. hope this helps :) xx

    iv had psorisis since i was 10 im now 33 and still have it. the best treatment for the scalp is betnovate scalp application its the only thing that works on my scalp. use it untill you are clear and then only use when it start to come back also rub it behind your ears. this is definetly the best for your head and ears please ask your doctor if you can try it regards adam

    hi i have had psoriasis on my scalp since i was 12. i am now 24, unfortunatly there is not a cure. i have been to many doctors. i have tried indian and even chinese medicine but nothing works. but its better than before i have to wash my hair daily but this helps. try using coconut oil this really helps!! i put it on my scalp over night and wash it out in the morning. Try alberto shampoo thats the only one that doesnt make my scalp worse so give it a go. the oil has kept my scalp calm, there is no scabyness. its still dry but it doesnt look like dandruff hope this helps u guys. x.

    Can you get psoriasis on your head. Because from a very young age ive had a bleedy, ichy and extremely dry scalp and iv used most of the medicated shampoos and conditioners, some of them have tar in them which are supposed to get rid of dandruff, but none have seemed to get rid of it. My hair is always filled with large flakes of skin and parts of my scalp start to bleed when ive only scratch my scalp gently. could this be psoriasis? please help thanks x
