Psoriasis and Scalp Care
When you have psoriasis on your scalp, you need to treat your scalp, not your hair.
If these methods fail, your doctor may prescribe a stronger corticosteroid solution, such as 1% fluocinolone acetonide (for example, Synalar). Limit use to 1 to 2 weeks to avoid rebound psoriasis (return of more severe psoriasis after treatment).
