Good Morning

We had a very cold winter and a very rainy spring so far. Since then I have had itchiness on the back of my scalp. I’m really not sure if it’s dandruff or psoriasis. I am using T-gel shampoo, coconut oil and cortisone for itchiness. Any recommendations?

    How are the shampoo, coconut oil and cortisone working for you so far, @bronxgirl?

    If my scalp psoriasis is itching I find a coal tar shampoo helps soothe things. Some of our community members have mentioned that using a peppermint or tea tree oil shampoo calms their itching. We are all different though!

    If you haven’t done so already we would encourage you to reach out to a medical professional for a diagnosis, then (in theory!) it should be easier to find suitable treatments. Keep us updated on how you’re doing!
