By Type of Psoriasis
Treatment Of Scalp Psoriasis
Topical therapy includes corticosteroids, calcipotriol/calcipotriene, tazarotene, tars and anthralin. Tars and anthralin are discussed above. If the psoriasis is thick, measures must be taken to thin down the plaques. Since creams and ointments are hard to apply to the scalp and wash out of the hair, they are rarely used to treat scalp psoriasis. Lotions, solutions and gels are generally used, since they are easier to apply, do not give a greasy appearance to the hair and are easier to wash out.
