Hi... Psoriasis can affect skin,scalp, nails and bones. As you are having scalp psoriasis moderate to severe variety first try with topical application of solution containing clobetasol and salisylic acid and apply twice daily which will remove scales. Use shampoo which contains coal tar with salisylic acid or containing steroid which also helps in it.To relieve itch take antihistaminic tabs. With this if you dont find any improvement then you have to take methotraxate tabs in pulse doses start with 7.5mgper week but after thorough investigations done. if you still don't find improvement contact me further.
