So Whats Scalp Psoriasis?
Psoriasis on the scalp forms in the same way as on other parts of the body but the hair traps the scale and so it does not rub away as it would, for instance, on the elbow. The result is that the scale can quickly build up, causing a thicker plaque which becomes more difficult to treat. This difficulty is compounded by the hair, which acts as a physical barrier obstructing the easy application of creams and ointments to the affected skin. Children can get scalp psoriasis too.
Scalp psoriasis can extend beyond the scalp. It can appear on the forehead as shown in the picture on this page. Sometimes, it extends to the back of the neck or appears behind the ears.
Signs and Symptoms of Scalp Psoriasis
- Red skin covered with flakes and silvery scales
- Skin flakes (dandruff) that may attach to the hair shaft
- Patchy silvery scales or thick crust on the scalp that may bleed when removed
- Patches that may extend beyond hairline or appear on other parts of the body
- Itching or soreness
Steroid Treatment for Scalp Psoriasis
WebMD says, “There is no cure, but many treatments can help symptoms, control flare-ups, and prevent it from coming back. .”
This is there conclusion after using harmful steroids either in tablet form or directly injected in your scalp. Are you ready for something like that, which can trouble you and not give any long term relief or would opt for a friendlier, gentle, painless treatment through specially developed homeopathy treatment.
Home Remedies for Scalp Psoriasis
Home remedies can help recover temporarily from scalp psoriasis. Though it cannot help long term or cure permanently, there are some home remedies that can help you feel better instantly.
In the Medicine Cabinet
Dietary supplements may help ease psoriasis symptoms from the inside. Fish oil, vitamin D, milk thistle, and evening primrose oil have been reported to help some sufferers. It’s important to only take supplements that do not interfere with other pre-existing conditions or have harmful side effects. Fish oil applied directly to the skin has also been known to work well for some.
Use a humidifier to keep the air in your home or office moist. It can prevent dry skin before it starts. Sensitive-skin moisturizers are also great at keeping your skin supple and from forming plaques.
No Dyes or Perfumes
Most soaps and perfumes have dyes and fragrances in them. Sure, they can make you smell great but they also can inflame psoriasis. Choose products labeled as “sensitive skin” – these are made without the dyes and perfumes that can irritate skin .
From the Kitchen
Diet may play a role in managing psoriasis. Eliminating red meat and fatty foods have been effective for some. Applying olive or vegetable oil to scales and patches of psoriasis can lock moisture and nutrients in. Try massaging a few tablespoons on your scalp to help loosen troublesome plaques during your next shower.
In the Bathtub
Hot water is your skin’s enemy, but a lukewarm bath with Epsom salt, mineral oil, milk, or olive oil can soothe the itching and infiltrate scales and plaques. Moisturize immediately after your bath for double benefits.
