According to the National Psoriasis Foundation, 50 percent of people with psoriasis will develop some scaling on their scalp. Scalp psoriasis can be anywhere from mild to severe and extend beyond the hairline to the back of the neck, around the ears, and onto the forehead. It can even cause temporary hair loss from the skin condition being aggravated, itched, and triggered to a more severe degree.
What can be done about the intensity and look of scalp psoriasis? Let’s discuss further…
Known Treatments for Scalp Psoriasis
Scalp psoriasis treatment has been an ongoing and ever-changing option from store shelves to dermatologist recommendations. While the main advice is to avoid scratching and causing the scalp psoriasis to worsen and spread, there are multiple treatment choices that have been used for decades. Some of them are:
- Topical steroids still remain the top treatment for psoriasis conditions.
- Oral antihistamines, these can help relieve the histamine reaction that can occur when flare-ups occur.
- Over the counter topical creams, which can include corticosteroid creams, to help relieve the intensity of psoriasis temporarily.
- Lotions with mineral oil or petroleum to give the skin a boost of moisture and reduce the size of your psoriasis flare up.
- Anti-itch creams, ointments, sprays, and medication to stop the severity of itch caused by stress and psoriasis.
However, a lot of these treatments for scalp psoriasis are thick and gooey, which a lot of people are not thrilled about for day-to-day use. It can cause your hairline to become greasy quickly and create a generally unhappy appearance for the person dealing with their psoriasis.
For some of these treatments, one of the main ingredients is tar. It disturbed us too, learning that a remedy for a skin condition is something as toxic and unhealthy as tar. This is even an ingredient in cigarettes, therefore why would it be used to heal and relieve scalp psoriasis?
Luckily for all suffering from psoriasis in any form, there are more alternative and factually healthy treatments!
