Scalp psoriasis is a common skin condition that impacts the lives of 7.5 million people. The condition is marked by raised skin patches that may appear on the scalp, neck, or ears and range from mild to severe.
While scalp psoriasis itself doesn’t cause hair loss, excessive itching, harsh treatments, and stress can cause people to lose their hair in the scalp's impacted area.
What Causes Scalp Psoriasis?
Doctors aren’t sure what exactly causes scalp psoriasis. However, what they know is that it is not contagious, but it may have a genetic link. This means that if an immediate family member has the condition, you may be at a higher risk of developing it at some point in your life.
Medical Treatments There are a variety of medical treatments that may provide some relief to scalp psoriasis. Common options include:
- Topical ointments, creams, foams, etc.
- Medicated shampoos
- Over-the-counter medications such as coal tar or salicylic acid
- A variety of FDA-approved prescriptions such as Anthralin or Tazarotene
- Steroid injections
