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.

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.

    Hair fall with itchy dry scalp burns when I use hair color. Oil application alleviates.Itchy scalp resumes after 5-6hrs after oiling.

  2. Fran O'Brien says:

    My husband has excessive itching and scaly and scabbing on his scalp. He continues to scratch which causes the bleeding and the scabbing. He is not obese and it is fairly constant regardless of the weather. He did suffer from PMR and was on steroids and methotraxait a few years ago. Obviously, PMR is also an autoimmune disorder. He’s been prescribed an ointment to rub on his scalp in the morning and night but it has been effective only for a few hours and then it’s back to the itchiness. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    • My daughter once had the same problem you described. I bought fresh Aloe and took out the juice then applied on her scalp. Leave it on for half an hour then washed off. It really helped.

  6. Neison Baby says:

    Hi doctor,
    I have a condition of scalp scaling. It forms immediately I scrub and wash. Maybe in a 2 or 4 days it’s back again. It started in centre of the scalp and now it’s spread towards sides and back. I’m deeply worried. It’s scales of dead skin for sure and it’s like flakes when i scratch the scalp I can feel that. I have no big itching though it’s an irritation when I move my fingers through hair.
    Between there is a lot of minute dandruff powder kind falling also. I’m too depressed to wear any dark dresses as its falling crazy. I believe in homeopathic treatments. Please suggest me something great.

      hello Dr. Sharma
      I am 71, obese, take medication for diabetes, blood pressure, cholesterol, thyroid. I have a serious case of scalp psoriasis for several years, constant tremendous itchiness, very dry scalp, snowfall like dandruff. I have redness on forehead along hairline and one patch at temple area, crustiness behind ears. All this despite regular hair washing. I have seen a dermatologist who recommended Sebcure to wash my hair, no particular recommendation for a Conditioner so I have been sing a light Dove product, and she also recommended a product called Dovo-gel to rub on scalp and keep keep overnight once or twice a week. None of this has helped. Can you kindly advise me on this case which seems to be uncontrollable.
      Thank you for your kind assistance
