Doctor can evaluate: A dermatologist can evaluate a scalp rash to be sure it is psoriasis. It could also be eczema, tinea capitis (a fungal infection), or some other itchy rash. If a patient is pretty sure her rash is psoriasis, she can try over-the-counter Hydrocortisone gels/creams/sprays, a tar shampoo, oral antihistamines, etc..., while waiting for the dermatology appointment.
