I do not have anywhere else on my body. I cover my ears with my hair but when I have a bad flare up, it looks like I have dandruff. I use medicated shampoo for my hair and Mometasone Furoate Cream for my ears. The cream works pretty well but have to use it once a week or so. The bad part is if I get water in my ears, I get a really bad ear infection. Just wondering if there is anyone out there that has the scalp psoriasis and how they deal.
Okay, here is the list from my dermatologist...although I admit I am a little lax at times: Ketaconazle cream for behind ears, Hydrocortisone cream around hairline 3x a week, Clobetasol cream for lower back 2x a day 3x a week, DermaSmoothe oil apply to scalp 3x a week - leave in for 4 hours or overnight, Ketacozole shampoo - 3x a week. The oil can be washed out with the shampoo.
I shave and scrape with a knife also using topical steroid cream after, a pretty painful but effective way for myself as im a man its easy to shave my hair unlike most women hair is quite important (not
trying to be stereotypical) but ive heard of people using olive oil, vasaline, but realistically you need strong topical creams, such as diavabet or celestone.
It's odd that after reading all these post, there are no duplicate remedies. We all have tried different over the counter and prescription medications. I thank all of you for your responses. It is nice to know that there are people out there struggle with this but at the same time, I am sorry that you are dealing with it also. At present I am almost clear on my scalp but not my ears. My sister in law used banana skins on her legs and arms which of course is impossible to do on your scalp but the other day at Walmart and saw a jar, Garnier Fructis Strengthening Treat 1 min hair mask Banana extract. I thought I would give it a try. I put it on my hair, like I was dying it. It is a lose cream, easy to apply. I then wrapped my hair in plastic wrap for about 2 hours. Now I know it is for your hair but after I washed my hair, my scalp was a soft and had no dryness or rough spots. It is now day four and no signs of plaque. I am going to buy a few more jars to have on stand bye and see what happens. I will keep you posted on the process.
I did also have psoriasis on my scalp about 3 years ago mine was bad bleed and ooze to the point made my hair wet ( my neck where the hair starts) i used alovera (Straight from the plant ) rub it 3-4xs a day for 30 days it went away and has not come back.I hope this is helpful
I know this may be common sense but in addition to the steroid creams use a good quality ointment daily. I use Sorion for my ears, and it really works for me. I try to work into the ear canal slightly with a q tip and really message into the front and back of my ears. As usual when I’m posting my experiences I like to mention that we all need to fight psoriasis from the inside as well. Biologics failed me every time. But after a recommendation from a friend on Instagram I found An oral supplement on amazon called Lucraderm. It’s an all natural powder you mix with liquid and I swear by it. I am mostly clear. I fight my psoriasis with topicals but this Lucraderm has been awesome for me. Best of luck!
