This may sound weird but I swear it works
At CVS there is a shampoo for psoriasis called MG217 I take a bath while I’m in the bath I lather my head up good with this and then I get a shower cap or a plastic bag from the grocery store and put it on and let it soak while I’m in the bath
Then I rinse it out put on conditioner and do it every night until I see improvement.
It works every time for me

Ask you doctor for Clobetasol Propionate Topical Solution, USP. It is like water so use it lightly on your scalp it helps a lot. I use it when I really need it.

I use baby shampoo. I know it’s gentle but when I need a deeper cleanse I put a small amount of baking soda and it leathers up really well.

That helps too. My dermatologist subscribed a medication and I use it when I need to.
