Scalp Psoriasis – Overview

Scalp psoriasis can often be confused for dandruff because of the similar looking white scales on the scalp. Both conditions are however different. Scalp psoriasis can be hereditary and may also be seen in children. It is an autoimmune skin disorder, which most often gets triggered by stress. It causes red patches of skin covered with silvery scales and a thick crust on the scalp, most often extending just past the hairline that may bleed when removed.
