Scalp Psoriasis Treatment

Learn about treatment of scalp psoriasis. The most common treatments for mild scalp psoriasis are topical medications applied directly on the scalp.

However, if you have more severe psoriasis or have psoriasis elsewhere on your body, you may need to take a systemic medication by mouth or injection.

If your scalp psoriasis responds poorly to a medication after repeated use, your doctor may combine or replace it with another type of treatment.
