any non-perscription cures for scalp psoriasis

I have been battling with my scalp for years and dont have health insurance to pay for perscriptions or dermatologists, does anyone know of a over the counter medicine that can help cure or relieve the pain of scalp psoriasis. I have tried shampoos(denorex, T-gel, selson blue, head and shoulders etc.) creams(scalpicin etc.) and nothing seems to help with the scales. It is getting bad now when I brush my hair or itch my head-I know I know I am bad- hair comes out with the scales. I dont want to be bald! help!

Re: any non-perscription cures for scalp psoriasis

Have you tried the tar shampoos like neutrogena?
I have a friend that has psoriasis all over and has to go for light therapy. But one thing that helps him is diet. Eating more fruit and vegetables. You need to find a way to get the medication. Their are all kinds of programs out their. The companies that make the medications also have programs. They will have you fill out forms but you shouldn't suffer. They give illegal aliens free health care. They better help Americans.
