What is Scalp psoriasis?

BY Bruce Shane 6 July, 2007

A thick scale and redness becomes evident around the scalp margins. Many patients experience severe itching and a feeling of tightness and some report soreness. One patient has described the build-up of scales as being like 'a mountain on my head'.

Some people with severe psoriasis suffer temporary thinning of the hair. This can be very distressing but the hair will grow again once the flare up has subsided.
