Which shampoos should you use if you have psoriasis?

ANSWER

Buy a medicated shampoo. Talk to your doctor about a good product for you. These shampoos can help loosen rough scales on your scalp, but they won’t always do a good job of cleaning your hair. After using one, follow with a regular shampoo. This will make sure you get rid of any odd “medicine” smell and make your hair easier to style.
