Dandruff and Scalp Psoriasis Treatment

23/03/18 9:52

If your scalp itches and flakes, your doctor can tell if it’s just dandruff or a more serious problem like psoriasis, a disease that causes red, scaly patches on your skin. Once you have the right diagnosis, you can treat the cause and get some relief.

What Is Dandruff?

Dandruff is a common skin problem. You may notice flakes that fall off your scalp and cling to your hair or land on dark clothing. Your scalp may itch, too.

Scalp psoriasis on the other hand is a common skin complaint that often manifests itself as scaly red bumps and dry patches. It is not always confined to the scalp and can spread to the forehead, back of the neck and behind the ears.

The cause of scalp psoriasis is unknown, but it is thought to result from a defect in the immune system which causes skin cells to too multiply too quickly and form thick patches. It is not contagious but may be hereditary.

The severity of the complaint varies but in its worst form it can lead to thick, crusted sores that are intensely itchy. Continual itching can lead to infections, hair loss and bald patches.

Some of the common symptoms of scalp psoriasis to look out for are:

  • Scaly, reddish, bumps appearing in patches
  • Silvery-white scaly bumpy patches
  • Flaking and dandruff
  • Dry scalp
  • Itchy scalp
  • Burning or soreness
  • dandruffHair loss
