My 12-year-old son has been struggling with scalp psoriasis for the last few years.

After using... Read more »

I am a 61-year-old gentleman who has suffered with psoriasis for over 25 years. A friend of mine at work, who works in hazardous waste, was about to throw away a bottle of T/Sal [salicylic acid shampoo made by Neutrogena] shampoo because it was one year old.

Diet and bathing tips

I alternate Grandpa’s Pine Tar soap and Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo [tar product] for one week and Psoriasil Medicated Scalp and Body Wash [OTC salicylic acid product] the next. The weather has been pleasant enough to allow three or four days a week of 20-minute sunbathing. Petroleum jelly is still my most reliable skin protectant. I... Read more »

I have had scalp psoriasis since I was 12 (I’ll be 28 next month). I have tried a medicated shampoo and every over-the-counter shampoo you can possibly get.

I have had scalp psorisis for 3 years. Clobex Shampoo is the only product that works for me. I use it with Tarsum Shampoo. My psoriasis always comes back when I stop using the Clobex.

I have had scalp psoriasis for over twenty years. Like others who suffer, I’ve tried numerous shampoos and lotions. Then I stumbled across a product named Softee Coconut Oil Hair & Scalp Conditioner.

Treating scalp

February 6, 2013 — 6:08pm
I spent a long time trying to figure out how to treat my severe scalp psoriasis. Here is what finally worked for me: 1) I went to a top-of-the-line dermatologist. It cost me extra money in the short run (top derms in my city don’t take insurance) but it was SO worth it. It was... Read more »

I am totally clear of psoriasis and I want to share my secrets with you. I use Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Shampoo, available in most salons, and I have been able to wear black tops for years.

I’ve had difficult scalp psoriasis off and on for years. Westwood stopped making the only tar shampoo that worked for me. My alternative off-day shampoo and conditioner were from Aveda.
