Scalp Psoriasis

Scalp Psoriasis is a skin disorder causing raised, red, scaly patches on the scalp, sometimes extending to the forehead or neck. Its exact cause is unknown but is linked to immune system interactions in genetically predisposed individuals. Symptoms include reddish patches, dandruff-like, flaking, itching, and temporary hair loss. Factors like stress, infections, cold weather, and skin injuries can trigger or worsen the condition. It's worth noting that the condition isn't merely a cosmetic concern. It can cause significant discomfort. Therefore, those who suspect they have scalp psoriasis should seek out professional help from a trichologist.
