All newer medications, especially the biologic therapies, are extremely expensive, with cash prices ranging from $30,000 per year to over $80,000 per year. Other medications, topical and systemic, that have been available for decades have been subjected to regular price increases, which, while keeping them less expensive than a newer biologic agent, has still resulted in them being very expensive. This usually includes generic medications, when generics are available.

Br J Dermatol. 2010; 162: 633-636 It is generally accepted that scalp psoriasis, like all psoriasis, is related to genetic defects that affect certain parts of the immune system. There are undoubtedly environmental risk factors that trigger its initial development in genetically predisposed individuals. The notion that "emotional stress" plays a causal role or at least exacerbates psoriasis has been difficult to prove. There is no question, however, that psoriasis of the scalp can be an extremely stressful experience.

Psoriasis Triggers and Treatments Pustular psoriasis affects adults more than children, and it accounts for fewer than 5 percent of psoriasis cases.
The scalp is one of the most common sites to be affected by psoriasis, and sometimes it is the only area of involvement. It usually extends to, or just beyond the hairline and commonly occurs behind the ears. Scalp psoriasis may appear in the form of fine white flakes (similar to dandruff) or the scale may become thickened, with an appearance like cradle cap.
Language: Obesity. People with psoriasis, especially those with more severe disease, are more likely to be obese. It's not clear how these diseases are linked, however. The inflammation linked to obesity may play a role in the development of psoriasis. Or it may be that people with psoriasis are more likely to gain weight, possibly because they're less active because of their psoriasis.
Psoriasis Treatment Topics The hair on the scalp may make usual topical medications for psoriasis difficult to use. So, you may be prescribed lotions, liquids, gels, foams, or sprays instead of thicker creams or ointments used on other parts of the body.
Phototherapy requires repeated exposure of the skin to ultraviolet light, using one of several techniques.

Exposure tosunlight and water can help, too. The sun’s ultraviolet rays slow the growth of skin cells and water helps soften lesions.
