Dermatologist Dr. R.G. Joshi's  Response

Thanks for writing here.

Psoriasis is a skin disorder occuring because of disturbed skin cell cycle.

It responds to treatment but relapses are common.

You have to accept this.

There is no permnant cure for it.

Topical steroid lotions like propysalic and shampoos like ionax t works well in scalp psoriasis.

In severe cases drugs like methotrexate is required.

It will be better to consult a dermatologist and take the treatment under his guidance.

Hope this will help you.Take care.
