Hi and thanks for the query, The commonest used topical treatment for scalp psoriasis is steroid therapy. Depending on the intensity, it could be associated or replaced by other drugs like Tazarotene and Anthralin. The opinion of a dermatologist is most desirable. I suggest you book an appointment with a dermatologist. Thanks and kind regards. Bain LE, MD.

Hi, Psoriasis is a life long disease and is not exactly curable. It needs proper treatment for the scalp psoriasis. You talk to a proper dermatologist who will guide you best. Take care.
