Scalp Psoriasis

Posted on March 21, 2018

Scalp psoriasis can be a serious challenge for members on MyPsoriasisTeam. Besides the “maddening” itch, it can impact physical appearance and self-esteem. Members of MyPsoriasisTeam share stories of excessive flaking and hair that thins or falls out. “My scalp’s a holy mess,” lamented one member. Another was scared to wash her hair because “it comes out in clumps.” For people who color their hair, dye can sting and burn. Discussions revolve around the best shampoos, oils, and moisturizers to calm the scalp and reduce skin symptoms that stop hair growth. If you’re coping with scalp psoriasis, MyPsoriasisTeam offers support and suggestions for possible relief.
