- The first step in the treatment of scalp psoriasis
Psoriasis is a condition that requires medical attention right from the beginning, however, there are many cases wherein the home remedies were effective enough to eliminate the skin problem completely. But, there are some skin types that are too persistent to be cured naturally. The best way to treat them would be to get it done with the help of a doctor and the medications they prescribe. The first thing which doctors do when it comes to treating your psoriasis problem is they will ask you to go for a topical treatment while being on medication. What is this topical treatment and how does it work against scalp psoriasis or psoriasis in general? Let’s take a look!
- Topical Treatment for Scalp Psoriasis
The topical treatment for scalp psoriasis uses the ointments, creams, powders, gels and shampoos available at the medical stores to remove the scales which form due to psoriasis. In scalp psoriasis, scales form near your scalp and in the area between ears and hairline. These scales are formed because of the decay of skin due to psoriasis. Decaying of skin means that the tissues and cells of our skin fall prey to psoriasis and its agents which eventually leads to scale formation. These scales are removed by applying ointments, gels, creams and powders which have elements like salicylic acid and lactic acid in them. These scales are removed and what is left after their removal is treated in a different way altogether. This was the beginning of treatment for your scalp psoriasis.
- After smoothening the scales
It is time to peel them off. Yes, as cruel as it might sound, you have to peel off the scales once they have smoothened after applying the topical treatment tools. After the scales have been successfully peeled off by using a brush or a comb, apply thick creams on the scalp to make sure the moisture does not go away anywhere.
- Time to use the medications
Once you have gotten rid of the scales on your scalp, it is time to use medications which are meant for your scalp. All you got to do is to make sure that they do slip into your ears or eyes while you are applying them by using cotton balls. Use of cotton balls is advised because getting your hands in direct contact with the psoriasis affected region may cause it to spread over there. After consulting with your doctor, you can also use a shower cap to ensure that the medications do not slip down your head to other sensitive parts.
- To prevent aftereffects of the treatment
Now that you have successfully managed to reach this far, you must know how to deal with the aftereffects of the treatment you have followed so far. After you have followed the above five steps, you can try using some additional products to ease the aftereffects of the treatment like itchiness. It is advised to use hot towels, cold compressions, over the counter hair conditioner to ease the itchiness which is felt after the treatment is over. However, it will be better to consult with a doctor before doing that.
