Are There Any Home Remedies For Sebopsoriasis?
My question is:
1) Should I continue and complete course using the same medicines doctor prescribed last time.
2) Or Alternatively, is there any home/natural remedy that I can follow to get rid of this disease.
I suggest a coal tar shampoo+steroid lotion X2 wks followed by Vit D lotion
Hello. Thank you for writing to us
I have taken note of your query and I have understood it.
No, there is no approved home remedy for sebopsoriasis.
Treatment is based on topical preparations like coal tar Or steroid based shampoo and topical steroids lotions. Topical steroids lotions/ solutions foam etc are first line of treatment options in scalp psoriasis/ sebopsoriasis.
The disease may return back after seemingly complete cure. Therefore, maintenance with a coal tar based shampoo is useful in keeping it in under remission Or under control. For mild or recurrent disease topical vitamin D lotions e.g calcipotriol are usually preferred because they are devoid of steroid related side effects.
You may visit your dermatologist for re-evaluation. Your dermatologist will prescribe you treatment according to the present severity. A remarkable improvement is usually achieved in about 2 weeks. Thereafter you may switch to a coal tar based shampoo e.g Protar lotion/ shampoo for maintenance of remission.
For mild or recurrent disease it is better to use a topical vitamin D preparation e.g calpsor lotion Or pasitrex lotion etc which are devoid of steroid related side effects.
These are prescritpion products and should be used under supervision of a doctor, therefore I suggest that you talk to your dermatologist for the needful
