Sahacha Nilkumhang/ShutterstockThere are a host of OTC and prescription shampoos designed to help treat scalp psoriasis, Dr. Farber says. When you have psoriasis, your skin grows at an abnormally fast rate, resulting in the buildup of psoriasis lesions or patches. If you have scalp psoriasis, tar, zinc, or salicylic acid-based shampoos can help slow skin growth and reduce inflammation, itching, and scaling, he says. Neutrogena T/Gel Therapeutic Shampoo Original Formula and G217 Psoriasis Medicated Conditioning 3% Coal Tar Formula Shampoo are some top sellers. When shampooing your hair, don’t rub or scrub, warns the American Academy of Dermatology. “Rubbing, scrubbing, and scratching your scalp tend to make scalp psoriasis worse,” the AAD states. Instead, shampoo gently and make sure to avoid all these hair washing mistakes.
Psoralens Treatment with UVB or psoralen plus UVA phototherapy is recommended for patients with moderate to severe psoriasis as well as in those who have had minimal response to topical therapy.4 Targeted phototherapy with an excimer laser can be used in patients with BSA involvement of less than 10%.
