Comprehensive Guide to Psoriasis Scalp Treatment by Dr. Gary Rothfeld, Board Certified Dermatologist

Understanding Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp psoriasis is a common chronic condition that causes raised, red, and often scaly patches. It can appear as a single patch or multiple patches, and in severe cases, it can spread to the forehead, back of the neck, and around the ears. This condition not only affects the physical appearance but can also cause significant discomfort and emotional distress.

Symptoms of Scalp Psoriasis

Red patches: Raised and inflamed areas of the scalp.
Silvery scales: Thick, white scales on the red patches.
Dry scalp: The scalp becomes dry and cracked.
Itching and soreness: Persistent itchiness that can lead to scratching and soreness.
Hair loss: Excessive scratching and the severity of the psoriasis can lead to temporary hair loss.
