Causes of Scalp Psoriasis

The cause of scalp psoriasis remains unknown, believed to result from issues with the immune system, causing rapid skin cell growth leading to patches. There might be a genetic link, making it more likely to occur if it runs in the family.

Symptoms of scalp psoriasis ranges from:

  • Fine scaling to severe bumpy patches.
  • Silvery-white or grey scales.
  • Dandruff-like flaking, dryness, itching, burning, soreness.
  • Hair loss in some cases, as the condition itself doesn’t directly cause hair loss. Hair usually regrows
    after the skin clears up.

Treatment of Scalp Psoriasis

For mild scalp psoriasis, topical treatments are often the primary approach. Over-the-counter medicated shampoos, creams, gels, lotions, and soaps containing ingredients like salicylic acid or coal tar can help soften scales and reduce skin growth, inflammation, itching, and scaling. In severe cases, dermatologists might prescribe stronger topical treatments or recommend phototherapy, where affected areas are exposed to ultraviolet light. For cases resistant to other treatments, systemic medications that work throughout the body might be suggested.
