Thanks for using healthcaremagic.I understand your concern.
1) You can apply fluocinonide generic solution 0.05% over the affected area in small amount,twice a day,maximum up to two weeks.
2) You can use clobetasol propionate shampoo 0.05% once daily or clobetasol scalp solution(Cormax)0.05% apply over the affected area in small amount,twice daily,maximum up to two weeks.
3)You can use topical calcipotriene solution or foam 0.005%(though little expensive)are also equally effective in treating scalp psoriasis.
I would advise you to discuss this with your doctor preferably a dermatologist to consider any of the above prescription if it is appropriate for you.Hope this information helps you.If any further questions, happy to help you.Take care.

Hi,

I've scalp psoriasis since last 7-8 months and I've tried all varieties of shampoo, cream all possible things but nothing worked. Now I'm getting treated under homeopathy and some ayurvedic medicine and I'm yet to see any result. Do you have cure for the same I'm scared it should not affect other area of my body.
