Health Tip: Coping With Scalp Psoriasis
Try not to irritate your scalp
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- If dry, itchy scalp psoriasis is bothering you, there are things you can do to help bring it under control.

The American Academy of Dermatology advises:

  • Avoid scratching your scalp.
  • Treat the psoriasis to minimize the itching.
  • Be gentle when shampooing your hair; don't rub or scrub.
  • Gently remove scales from the scalp, taking care not to pick them off. Talk to your dermatologist about a skin softener.
  • Find healthy ways to manage stress.
