They differ from ordinary dandruff
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Scalp psoriasis may be confused with dandruff, but the two conditions can cause a host of differing symptoms.

The American Academy of Dermatology says unique signs of scalp psoriasis may include:

  • Patches of skin on the scalp that may be thick and inflamed.
  • Bleeding from scratching the scalp.
  • Extreme tenderness or a burning sensation on the scalp.
  • Temporary hair loss.
