Natural Treatment for Scalp Psoriasis

Natural Treatment for Scalp Psoriasis


Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition characterized by the rapid buildup of skin cells, leading to thick, red or white patches covered with silvery scales. When it occurs on the scalp, it is referred to as scalp psoriasis. While there is no definitive cure for psoriasis, there are several natural treatments that can help manage its symptoms and provide relief. In this blog, we will explore some effective natural remedies to soothe and care for your scalp when dealing with psoriasis.

It’s important to note that these scalp psoriasis treatments may work differently for each individual, so it’s recommended to consult with a healthcare professional to discuss the best option for you. The following are natural remedies that have been found beneficial for scalp psoriasis treatment:

  1. Coconut or mineral oil: Applying these oils can help moisturize scalp psoriasis, thereby reducing itch and softening scales. Gently massage the oil into the scalp, leave it on for a few hours or overnight, and then wash it off with a mild shampoo.

  2. Aloe vera: The gel extracted from the aloe vera plant has soothing properties and can help reduce inflammation. Apply pure aloe vera gel directly to scalp psoriasis and leave it on for 15-20 minutes before rinsing it off.

  3. Tea tree oil: Tea tree oil has antifungal and anti-inflammatory properties that can be used as a natural treatment for scalp psoriasis. Dilute a few drops of tea tree oil in a carrier oil (such as coconut or olive oil) and gently massage it into the scalp. Leave it on for a short period before rinsing it off.

  4. Dead Sea salt or Epsom salt baths: Soaking in a warm bath with Dead Sea salt or Epsom salt can help treat scalp psoriasis and reduce inflammation. Follow the instructions on the product for the correct amount to add to your bathwater and soak for 15-20 minutes.

  5. Stress management: Stress can exacerbate scalp psoriasis symptoms. Stress-reducing activities such as meditation, yoga, deep breathing exercises, or hobbies can help manage stress levels and potentially improve scalp psoriasis symptoms.

Scalp Psoriasis Treatment

While natural treatments for scalp psoriasis may provide relief to some, they may not work for everyone. For additional symptom control, natural treatments for scalp psoriasis can be used in combination with light therapy, or phototherapy.

The combination of using natural treatments and light therapy can provide a synergistic effect in managing scalp psoriasis, leading to less frustrating symptoms and an improved quality of life. Working with a healthcare professional to develop a comprehensive treatment plan for your scalp psoriasis is essential for effective scalp psoriasis treatment.
