Diseases & Conditions Psoriasis Of those affected by psoriasis, up to 80% will have involvement of the scalp.5 Scalp psoriasis may occur in isolation or in conjunction with other forms of psoriasis. Scalp psoriasis is characterized by red, thickened plaques with silver-white scale, either contained within the hairline, or extending onto the forehead, ears, and posterior neck.6 Importantly, scalp psoriasis can be a cause of great physical and social distress, with up to 97% of affected individuals reporting that the condition interferes in their daily life.7 In many cases, scalp psoriasis is associated with intense pruritus, and scale is commonly shed as dandruff creating significant social embarrassment for affected individuals. In a recent multinational survey, 43% of respondents to a telephone survey identified itch as the most bothersome symptom of their psoriasis.8 Moreover, scalp psoriasis can also result in alopecia. Although this is commonly reversible with appropriate treatment, increasing evidence links scarring alopecia with chronic, relapsing episodes of the disease.9
