Scalp Psoriasis

How does one deal with scalp Psoriasis? One way to help heal scalp Psoriasis is to cut the hair short and use phototherapy. When the light reaches the scalp, it will help heal. Other ways include applying creams or ointments, such as Clobetasol, Dovonex, etc. These are the best two lotions to moisturize psoriasis.

Yet other techniques to help stop scalp Psoriasis include tar products. These are the safest and most effective.

Some people use biologic drugs for Psoriasis, and of course if psoriasis on the rest of the body heals, the scalp will follow.

Psoriasis and Diet

Does diet affect Psoriasis? It does for some people and doesn't for other people. In fact, from our experience it seems to be half and half.

Sometimes just the suggestion of diet affecting Psoriasis can launch one of us patients into a deep analysis and test mode of our own diet and affects on Psoriasis. I personally tried no milk / dairy for months, then no wheat, then no beef, then extra water, less seafood including shrimp and other shellfish, then the zone diet. None of these improved my Psoriasis. In fact the diet made my Psoriasis worse.

That doesn't mean food can't be a trigger for other people. Our suggestion is just to pay attention and see if you've noticed food triggers over time. These are the best two lotions to moisturize psoriasis.
