What Is Scalp Psoriasis?
Scalp psoriasis is a common skin disorder that produces raised, reddish, often scaly patches. It can appear as a single patch or several, and can even affect the entire scalp. Scalp psoriasis can also spread to the forehead,back of the neck, or behind the ears.
Scalp psoriasis can be mild and almost unnoticeable. But it can also be severe, last a long time, and cause thick, crusted sores. Intense itching can affect sleep and everyday life; and scratching a lot can lead to skin infections and hair loss.
