Scalp psoriasis is not typically treated with systemic therapy unless it is required for recalcitrant or severe cases. Although evidence is lacking for conventional agents such as acitretin, methotrexate, and cyclosporine, a few clinical trials looking at the response of scalp psoriasis to biologic therapy and newer agents have been reported, either as sub-analyses or prespecified end points. Overall, scalp psoriasis does improve in conjunction with improvement of body psoriasis with all systemic therapies.

Systemic medications are medicines that work throughout the whole body to affect cell growth and help decrease the body’s immune response. These types of medicines are usually taken by people whose psoriasis doesn’t get better with topical treatments such as ointments, creams, lotions, gels, or foam solutions and UV light therapy.

Psoriasis, including scalp psoriasis, is a chronic, recurrent inflammatory condition that has a profound impact on patient quality of life. Many patients report distress related to physical appearance as well as itching, scaling, and in some cases, alopecia. The mainstay of treatment is topical therapy, but this can be challenging given the location and hair-bearing skin. Adherence is an issue and newer topical formulations, such as foams and sprays, help to improve treatment outcomes by improving adherence. In those patients with moderate-to-severe disease who do not respond to topical treatments, systemic therapy needs to be considered.

Procedures A-Z Journal of Theoretical & Computational Science Open Access Journal Systemic treatments are medicines which affect the entire body, not only the site of psoriatic skin lesions. For example, medicines which are swallowed enter the blood stream and are distributed throughout the entire body. They are typically only used to treat psoriatic skin rash which affects > 5% of the body surface area and cannot be adequately controlled using topical or phototherapy. They include:
Anthralin is a topical antiproliferative, anti-inflammatory agent. Its mechanism of action is unknown. Effective dose is 0.1% cream or ointment increased to 1% as tolerated. Anthralin may be irritating and should be used with caution in intertriginous areas; it also stains. Irritation and staining can be avoided by washing off the anthralin 20 to 30 min after application. Using a liposome-encapsulated preparation may also avoid some disadvantages of anthralin.
In inverse psoriasis, genital lesions, especially in the groin and on the head of the penis, are common. Psoriasis in moist areas like the navel or the area between the buttocks (intergluteal folds) may look like flat red plaques without much scaling. This may be confused with other skin conditions like fungal infections, yeast infections, allergic rashes, or bacterial infections.
Recruiter: Hywel Dda University Health Board Apply for this job Based on the most current research and data, psoriasis is now understood as a non-contagious, chronic inflammatory auto immune whole life disease that manifests in the skin, joints and other organs as associated co-morbities. These could be psoriatic arthritis, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, depression, obesity, metabolic syndrome and other immune-related conditions such as Crohn’s disease and lymphoma.
A 49-year-old white woman presented with a 20-year history of scalp psoriasis. Over the years, she had tried numerous topical treatments, such as 0.05% clobetasol propionate solution with 0.005% calcipotriene solution for 3 months, as well as various tar- and salicylic acid–based shampoos, with no success. She stated that the itching associated with her scalp psoriasis had worsened over the past year, often keeping her awake at night. She had abandoned medical treatment for 6 months. She was otherwise in good health and was not taking any medications. There was no family history of skin disease. Physical examination revealed thick, hyperkeratotic, scaly, erythematous, confluent plaques almost completely covering the scalp, including the postauricular area, clinically consistent with scalp psoriasis.

A monoclonal antibody against IL-17a, ixekizumab, was analyzed in a post hoc analysis of the Phase 2 trial to determine the effect on scalp psoriasis.55 A total of 105/142 (74%) patients enrolled in the Phase 2 program had scalp involvement with a mean baseline PSSI of 18.7 (SD 14.1). At week 12, the percentage improvement of PSSI from baseline was 87.1% (25 mg), 94.8% (75 mg), and 84.8% (150 mg) compared to 30.5% (placebo). By week 20, a PSSI of 0, or clear, was achieved in 58.3%, 66.7%, and 86.4% of patients receiving ixekizumab (25 mg, 75 mg, and 150 mg, respectively) compared to only 10% in the placebo group. At the end of the open-label period at week 48, all patients were receiving ixekizumab 120 mg every 4 weeks, and 78% of all patients had a PSSI of 0.55

People with erythrodermic psoriasis are often hospitalized. Unlike in cases of mild or moderate psoriasis, topical creams are not the first line of treatment. Instead, most people with erythrodermic psoriasis need drugs that affect the whole body.
