Psoriasis on scalp and neck
Almost a year ago I started having itching behind my right ear which I thought was a bug bite. Long story short the entire back of my scalp and nape of my neck have horrible itching. I went to my GP twice and she sent me to my dermatologist who said it looked like psoriasis. She prescribed clobetasol propionate shampoo. I am to use it until the itching stops and then I must stop using it for at least as many days or weeks as I used it and I know there is a maximum of four weeks that you can use it at any one time. My problem is the itching starts up immediately after I stop using it. I have tried coal tar shampoo, and the other kind of shampoo which name I can’t remember right now. Basically I’ve tried everything that I’ve read is recommended for psoriasis of the scalp. Anyone have any good ideas and also, how long has anyone used that steroid shampoo? Thanks for any input!
