How To Treat Psoriasis On The Scalp — 10 Comments

  1. Am sure this site can help those with psoriasis like me. You have identified the causes and how to treat it so it will be easier for some to know and follow the steps for self-care.

    One thing I observed when I was undergoing treatment with my body is that I suffer from the side effects of steroid medicines in the stomach, it’s good there is topical medication and it helped a lot.

    • Thanks for your comments Jimmy. I have given up with standard medical treatments myself long ago, because they tend to work well in the beginning for as long as your body is not getting accustomed to it, then they become ineffective, and the horrible side effects I used to have, with any treatments. Then when I discovered that I could reduce my Psoriasis Holistically I had to give it a try, knowing very well that it could never be cured completely anyway, but at least, it really feels like it has gone, so that’s the main thing.

      Best wishes for a good and healthy life.

  2. Thank you for putting forward a unique post on the treatment of psoriasis. Psoriasis can be really embarrassing for sufferers of it. The flaking and itching is sometimes very obvious, especially when they visit the barber or hair salon. Dietary intervention where effective is a holistic way to combat the problem and can be used to augment pharmaceutical treatments. Wish you all the best with your site.

    • Thanks so much for your input Everton. As you are mentioning it, the one thing that used to embarrass me the most was going to the barber, as everyone doesn’t  know that Psoriasis isn’t contagious, so I really had to find the time when my Psoriasis at the back of my neck was at its weakest to have my hair cut. Of course now, it is an issue of the past thanks to one of the programs I am following that suits me perfectly.

      I wish you the very best of health.

    Thanks for sharing this great article about Psoriasis, I heard my sister was having problems losing lots of hair lately, I’m not sure if this is her problem or not.
    I will forward your article to her so she can read it, and in case this is her problem, she will get some information about it.

    • Thanks for your comment Alejandra, and for forwarding my article to your sister, she surely will find enough information to know for sure if it is Psoriasis that she has, and if you or her have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me here.

      I wish you and your sister the best of health.

  4. I have had psoriasis when I was in college and trust me it was very bad. I was losing a lot of hair and had no idea what would happen in future. I thought I would just end up with a bald patch and maybe I would resort to wigs.

    It was really depressing and nothing was helping, however, I took some medicines prescribed by my skin doctor and change in water with which I washed my hair, this helped me a lot. I hope it helps people who are suffering from it.

    • Thanks for sharing your personal experience with us here Shrey, and I am glad that you found the remedy that works on you. It is scary when something like that gets you and you have no idea of what it could be and/or whether it will stop. It is rather depressing, and as we know, stress and depression have the ability to increase the flareups.

      If you have any questions Shrey, feel free to ask them here, it will certainly help other readers.

      I wish you a very healthy life,

  5. I have suffered with a mild form of this awhile ago. Do you know if it can spread onto the skin as a rash? I’m suffering from skin ailments and wonder if it could be this. Also, does apple cider vinegar work? I imagine that could burn. Thanks for sharing your experience with this so you can help us who suffer from it.

    • If not properly treated and kept under control, Psoriasis will spread. Apple cider vinegar is known to have been used since ancient times as a disinfectant, it is good for many things and is often used as a natural remedy for Psoriasis.

      I have personally never used it as a treatment for my Psoriasis but I know people who have done it. They normally apply directly to their skin with a cotton pad and let it sit there for about 10 minutes, then they rinse it off. If you go that route, you will need to repeat the treatment three times a day. I am assuming then, that it shouldn’t burn.

      I wish you a very healthy future.

      John ツ
