Medical Skin Conditions

Seborrheic Dermatitis and Psoriasis are very similar and can sometimes be misdiagnosed. If caught early enough, the long term outcome may be very successful and go into remission.

What is Psoriasis?

Psoriasis Vulgaris appears more profound at the ages of around 18-20yo and 58-60yo. Having hair on your head only adds to your psoriasis problem. I will point out that this is not in all cases but in around 50-60%. To soften these marks/crusts, you can use an over-the-counter shampoo &/or soap. Products containing salicylic acid ingredients will be useful. Speak to your Pharmacist to discuss this further.

Once the crusts/scales soften, it will be easier to either peel off and/or brush out using a fine-toothed comb.

Its common knowledge that psoriasis can appear anywhere on the body. The most common areas are on the knees, elbows and scalp.

Another key point is to keep skin moisturised rather than it being dry. Speak with your Doctor/GP or Dermatologist if over-the-counter products do not help. Having a bath and adding a bath oil such as QV helps, following up with a QV moisturiser. Again, you may also need a prescription medication if you are struggling with this.

Being outside and in the sun will definitely help your psoriasis a lot. This helps by leaving your lesions exposed. Having head full of hair will not help either but depending on its severity, you may look at getting it very short. With that in mind, a new hairstyle and new look will be a new you!

It is a slow process treating psoriasis and although chronic, doesn’t mean it cannot you can’t deal with it. You are still able to live in harmony with the condition. Despite the looks of aghast and stares, keep you head and chin help up high. Try to ignore it until its treatment phase is over. You will learn to manage this a lot better.
