My husband has scalp psoriasis which lead to a lot of hair loss.
What is now really helping us is massaging a castor oil diluted in sesame oil and washed off within 20 mins with Head and Shoulders shampoo (hairfall control variant. This has not only controlled the psoriasis but also improved his hair growth. He has thicker darker hair now. Please try it if u have scalp psoriasis. But one needs to do this everyday. All the best

not working

I've had a 'patch' of psoriasis on my scalp (sideburn area) for the past six months. Went to the dermatologist and was prescribed Lamisil tablets and OTC hydrocortisone 1%. cream. After 4 months with no results I went back and he injected the area with cortisone and prescribed Trianex .05%. Much better results since it’s almost completely gone. I think shampooing with Neutrogena T/Gel shampoo also helped (although I started using Jason Dandruff Relief shampoo (got mine at Amazon.com) and it seemed like overnight the “patch” disappeared, so I don’t know if was a combination or just the Jasons). I read Neem Oil is good for psoriasis and thought I’d give it a try. I just read a review on Jason’s and the person said it cured his dandruff after one use. I know in this tough economy many have to resort to home remedies but if you can afford it see a dermatologist or try the Jason’s.

Castor Oil has really worked for me. Since I'm African American and normally grease my scalp I just use the castor oil instead on my scalp and hair. I have seen a tremendous improvement. It also thickens my hair (which i don't need), but hey, the itching and flaking is minimal so i can't complain.

I myself have been dealing with red dry thick scaly patches on my sideburn and temple area for the past eight months. In that time I have seen two dermatologists, the first charged $145 a visit (went three times and was diagnosed with scalp psoriasis) During that time I was injected with Cortisone, prescribed Lamisil Tablets, Clobex Spray, and Triamex Cream. I was told to use T-Gel shampoo with Coal Tar and leave it on for several minutes and if possible leave it on and go out in the sun. I tried Vaseline, Baby’s Butt Cream, Vicks Vapor Rub, Aloe Vera, Tea Tree Oil, Oatmeal Paste, an Epson Salt Soak, Jason’s Dandruff Shampoo, Apple Cider Vinegar, swimming in the ocean hoping the salt water would help and other home remedies I can’t even remember. Not seeing any results I decided to go to a Kaiser dermatologist (covered through my insurance and a $5 co-pay) and he diagnosed my problem as seborrheic dermatitis and not scalp psoriasis. I informed him of the medications I was previously prescribed and he said Clobex is a very strong steroid and warned against using it. He basically said I have three options, which were to do nothing and eventually it should probably go away on its own. Number two, I could use a over-the counter cream or number three, try using Fluocinonide Topical Solution (Lidex) twice a day for two weeks along with T/Sal Shampoo with Salicylic Acid 3.0%. Of course I chose the third option and after one week I have seen amazing results. There are no more scaly patches, my skin is smoother and the redness is starting to go away. On top of that the itching is completely gone. He suggested using the medication for two weeks but if it should go away before that to stop using it since the skin will build up a resistance after two weeks and if I should have another flare up in the future to start the process all over again. I hope this helps since what you have might not be psoriasis at all.
