I have tried a lot of different shampoos etc and cannot stand the smell of coal tar. I'm now using a shampoo and conditioner made by moo goo. I love this. Stops a lot of irritation and redness. Also use a scalp cream made by moo goo. It's very soothing. Worth a try but everyone is different.

I found swedish bitters removes the inflammation immediately and it clears fairly quickly after application. Bitters is the food we as humans have stopped eating over time because it tastes bitter. I buy a large bottle and patiently saturate each spot with a cotton ball full of the tonic. If it stings, it works. If it's not stinging after 30 seconds move to the next spot. It works brilliantly on mouth ulcers too and I'm now taking the powder in pill form. In Australia I buy it at Flannerys and it costs $23 for a large bottle. The itch definitely goes and my scalp clears up with less hair loss.

I have tried so many expensive shampoos that I bought in health shops, all extremely expensive, and some not only didnot work but cause irritation. The Dematologist gave me the name of some but they all were coal tar and i can stand most things but the smell made me sick , stayed on the scalp all day and i found it very very hard on my hear, dried it out terribly and added to the dryness and to the hair breaking.... so
~~~ I just use a gentle shampoo now. A soft, gentle shampoo with no special promises attached. I have bad plaque psoriasis on my scalp, behind ears, neck but weird thing is, although there are nasty lumps of thickened skin and bleeding sometimes, I don't suffer dandruff type flakes too much and can wear black. I keep my hair abit long I hope this helps you as I think psoriasis on the Scalp is very very traumatic.
