Finally some relief with over the counter items.

My scalp is my biggest issue. The itching and scratching was very embarrassing. I started using Head & Shoulders Clinical strength and a stiff scalp brush that eliminated most of the plaque. I then use Scalpicin which is a liquid Hydrocortizone and am able to go 2-3 days nearly symptom free. I notice that when I eat Cilantro that the symptoms subside as well. Thanks.

    2. I've had scalp psoriasis for 10 years and nothing I tried could manage to relieve it till I found one shampoo on the Internet. It's called Psoeasy and manufactured by some Israel company. The product is allegedly based on natural ingredients provides its efficacy. Each treatment for scalp psoriasis is very individual which means no one guarantees this shampoo You should try this shampoo and not think about the price - it's worth it.

      1. I share my scalp psoriasis sufferings with my family and boyfriend, it's only them I can be open about my both physical and mental pain with. This assissts them in helping me find best psoriasis scalp treatment and I'm endlessly grateful to them for the support they give and especially to my mom who found this shampoo on the Internet that made my living with psoriasis far easier https://www.psoeasy.com/en/scalp-psoriasis-treatment
