Sometimes I use coconut oil in the evening or right after a shower. The past 2 days I have used Aquaphor. I need OTC/homeopathic suggestions for… read more
I have had scalp problems for about 13 years and was previously diagnosed with psoriasis. It has now spread to cover more of my scalp where it was previously just the back of my head. If you have psoriasis on your scalp was it hard to be diagnosed? Is this what yours looks like? Do you have more symptoms than just the scalp issues (fatigue, joint pain, etc)?
