Hello. Welcome to Healthcare Magic. I'm Dr. Christensen.

It usually isn't possible to diagnose a skin disorder without an examination. However, I see you posted your question in the "Psoriasis" category, so I'm presuming you've already been diagnosed with this condition. If so, you probably know that psoriasis frequently involves the scalp, and topical corticosteroids such as Bettamousse (betamethasone) are often used to treat psoriasis of the scalp.

If that describes your situation, a trial of Bettamousse for the sores on your scalp is reasonable. However, if your condition doesn't improve within one week -- or if you have not been diagnosed yet -- see your physician to identify the cause of your symptoms and discuss your treatment options.

I hope that helps. I'll be available if you have additional questions.
