Anyone Have Scalp Psoriasis And Also In Ears?

Anyone Have Scalp Psoriasis And Also In Ears?

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.

Does Anyone With PsA Suffer From Sporadic/widespread Joint Pain?

Most recently I… read more

How Do You Deal With Scalp Psoriasis?

How Do You Deal With Scalp Psoriasis?

I have severe psoriasis on my scalp, and so far nothing has helped. I've tried medicated shampoo, and oil drops like betamethasone, but my scalp is still peeling off all over in huge thick chunks. It becomes very painful, sometimes bleeds or oozes, and "heals" with incredibly tight skin similar to feeling a swim cap suctioned and pulled back on your head. Such large (circumfrence and thickness) pieces come off with hair that I have bald spots accumulating particularly on the back top of my head.
