With the summer months upon us and some of us enjoying the sun and warmth at the beach, it can be a challenge to hide scalp psoriasis.
A person with scalp psoriasis may feel embarrassed, depressed or have low self-esteem because of the way their scalp looks. Skin conditions can often lead to social withdrawal and isolation, especially if they are visible.

Living with psoriasis is hard enough but when it’s on your scalp it can be even more painful and isolating. It can be very difficult to get rid of scalp psoriasis because it affects such a small area of skin and is often hidden by hair. This means sufferers tend to hide away out of embarrassment or due to the discomfort they experience in everyday life.
Scalp psoriasis is a common skin disorder that makes raised, reddish, often scaly patches. It can pop up as a single patch or several, and can even affect your entire scalp. It can also spread to your forehead, the back of your neck, or behind and inside your ears.
Scalping psoriasis is common in people with plaque psoriasis — the most common form of psoriasis.
The same things that trigger dandruff may also trigger scalp psoriasis: a yeastlike fungus called malassezia; stress; and cold dry weather. Some hair products, like shampoos that contain coal tar, may irritate it.
Scalp psoriasis affects about 50% of people with psoriasis. It is easy to spot but hard to treat.
Psoriasis is a true autoimmune disease. Your immune system turns against your skin cells and starts attacking them. This causes skin cells to multiply faster than normal and results in the formation of red, itchy patches covered with white or silvery scales (the so-called plaques).
The scalp is the second most common place on the body where this happens after the lower back and elbows.
There are many factors that can trigger a flare-up including stress, infections, dry weather or skin injuries.
Typically, people who have psoriasis develop a few small patches at first. Over time, the patches tend to get bigger and spread over more area.
As someone who suffers from scalp psoriasis, I know how hard it is to find pictures of it. I always want to see what other people’s patches look like to compare mine, but there just aren’t many pictures out there.
So, I decided to take a few pictures of my own and share them with you.
I hope they give you some inspiration and courage!
Note: All of these pictures have been taken by me. I do not own any of the photos in this blog post.
Scalp psoriasis is a common and troublesome skin condition, which can be notoriously difficult to treat. It can cause itching, redness and flaking of the scalp and can also involve the hairline and forehead. If you have psoriasis on your scalp you may find that it is more difficult to conceal than elsewhere on your body. You may also find that it affects your self esteem, particularly if you have mild hair loss due to scratching or rubbing of the scalp. Over-the-counter remedies are not very effective in treating this condition, so it is important to seek medical advice if you have any concerns about your symptoms.
The type of treatment prescribed will depend on the severity of your psoriasis. The first line of treatment for mild cases is usually topical corticosteroid creams, which are applied directly to the affected area. These reduce inflammation and help to relieve itching. Most people who try topical corticosteroids will find that their symptoms improve significantly, but in some cases they may not prove effective enough to control symptoms.
If topical corticosteroids do not work well enough, other types of treatments can be used instead or in addition to them. One option is coal tar shampoos and other products, which reduce scaling and
