The right shampoo

January 14, 2013 — 10:25pm

I have very long hair and had a hard time finding a scalp treatment that would not take forever to wash out. I got a prescription for Dermasmooth from my doctor and love this product. It smells decent, washes out easily, and removes all of the plaques on my scalp with very little time commitment. The down side is that you need to have your doctor prescribe Dermasmooth. Also, if I stop using it, the scales and redness come back within a few days. Still, it is much more efficient and effective than anything else I have tried.


  • I hve psoriasis and it is affecting me very bad. I have tried so many shampoos but nothing seemed to do anything. I will be triyng this shampoo to see if it is good for me. At the moment Iam triyng the light tratment but it dos’nt seem to work for me. Thank you for your advise and I will try this shampoo.

  • My Dr. prescribed Dermasmooth scalp oil as a treatment for my scalp psoraisis . Unfortunately, I had a bad reaction to it and found it not to be effective. I wish I could have tried the shampoo first. None of the topicals worked for me, and I am now on methotrexate. The itch is gone, the flaking is not as bad, but it is still there and now my hair is thinning. I hope to find something that works soon.
