Re: Psoriasis, severe dandruff
I'm 21, I've had severe scalp psoriasis since I was 13. It's bad right now because it's dry and extremely cold in Boston.
The T-Gel and tar shampoos never worked for me. I tried injections, topical treatments (basic and acidic), sun therapy, etc etc. A million different ways of washing, not washing, etc etc my hair. The only thing that has given me any comfort is Paul Mitchell's Tea Tree shampoo. Leave it on and just let it tingle at your scalp for awhile. I have very long hair and it's easy to hide as long as you don't pick at it, but psoriasis is horrible and very difficult to deal with. Waking up in the morning is the worst because you scratch at night and I always have chunks of skin in my bed. It's totally gross. I'm sorry for anyone who has it, and I wish they would figure out how to treat it.
