Natural Homeopathic Remedies for Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp psoriasis is a skin complaint characterized by red inflammed lesions on the scalp covered with silvery white scales. Scalp psoriasis is a fairly common skin complaint. The exact reason behind scalp psoriasis is yet not cleared. However, it is considered to be a disorder of autoimmune origin. Homeopathic medicines for scalp psoriasis don’t suppress the complaint and follow a curative approach. homeopathic medicines for scalp psoriasis

In scalp psoriasis, due to a misdirected immune response, the cells of skin start to grow at a very quick pace (in day’s time instead of a few weeks). The body remains unable to shed these excessive cells which tend to pile up on the skin surface forming thick scaly patches. A person having a family history of psoriasis is at risk to get it too. Injury to scalp, smoking, and stress are a few factors that raise the risk of scalp psoriasis. These similar factors are also linked to worsening of scalp psoriasis.

    I have got scalp psoriasis that’s been triggered a couple year ago for the first time. After treating with hydrocortisone for a while, it dissapeared for about a good year. Now, over 7 months, it came back during a massive panic/stress attack. I haven’t been able to get rid of it for good this time and I am looking for alternatives to help with the excessive itching. My head gets really hot and I’ve mostly got the problems in the evening… I really hope you can give me some advice! Anything would be much much appreciated!

    Thanks, Simone

  17. Matthew Helms says:

    Dr. Sharma,

    Thanks in advance for reading, if time permits. I’m 30 years old and was admitted to the ER last year around July with an out of the blue stroke level blood pressure issue. Prior to the random attack I had never encountered any form of an attack similar. Prior to the attack I was packing up to move back in with my family, which alone was stressful. In that time, I had a slice of pizza and took a break to watch a video on my phone while sitting. As i relaxed there was a sharp pain at the back right of my head. I knew it wasn’t a migraine as I didn’t need to lie down or shut the lights off. I found a general practitioner soon after and was told I just have high blood pressure and to loose weight.

    I feel as though I’m just another pill for them to take. And I won’t stand for it. I’ve now been off then kidd pressure meds since may ’16. In this same time frame I’ve also encountered scalp issues which I believe may be psoriasis. It’s red and scaley, also just annoying and you can see the patches through my hair. I am around 260 lbs and around5’11”. I also get inner ear pimples ususally in the same ear(left) and it hurts very badly. I’ve tried a few types of shampoos from medicated over the counter, and also organic shampoos, none of which work. I also over sweat, very badly on my face from the top of my head.

    Please help. I’m also broke, don’t have insurance, as I can’t afford,

  18. My name is Elizabeth and I need help!! For three years I’ve been very sick. Monthly blood transfusions, kidney problems and white matter lesions in brain. It all started with a lump on my scalp and my hair knotting strangely. Now my scalp is a milky white color. My skin changed drastically as well as severe weight loss. I research day in and out trying to find a cure with no luck. It feels as though my hair is bunching as my scalp is very tight. I am a naturalist and have tried every treatment I know as well as treating internally and being on a strict diet. It is blocking blood flow around the head and causing severe ringing in the ears. My children, daughter 16, and son almost 2 now have the lump on top of head and a whitening scalp. We are pale skin so doctors don’t listen and have even called me crazy. It’s messing with their little bodies as it has mine. I would just like to be able to snuggle with my babies without worry and live a happy life. Please help

    • Need to Rule Out Paracites. They get in our system and can cause all kinds of problems, like itchy skin. Google it and educate yourself. No fear here just learn to educate yourself Good Luck.
