Topical treatments: There are numerous topical treatments to help with the flaking of the scalp in psoriasis. You can try t-gel or selsun blue shampoo. If this does not help, see your primary care physician for medicated shampoos and/or systemic medication.

Treatments: ...For psoriasis range from creams, ointments, shampoos, pills or shots. Also, phototherapy can help with psoriasis. All these methods of treatment work to slow the growth of skin or control the immune response associated with psoriasis. A doctor can prescribe these therapies. All the best!
