Half of all people who suffer from psoriasis develop scalp psoriasis. The symptoms can vary from fine scaling to thick, crusted plaques covering the entire scalp. This condition can extend beyond the hairline onto the forehead, down the neck and around the ears.
Dermalex Scalp Psoriasis gel is specially designed for easy use on hair-covered skin. Its key ingredients are the same as in Dermalex Psoriasis cream, at a lower concentration, optimized for scalp psoriasis.
It has the same unique triple action:
- Normalizes skin cell production, thus tackling the cause of the disease.
- Restores the skin barrier and creates a protective layer on top of the skin to seal in moisture.
- Reduces patching, scaling and itching, and stimulates the skin’s own repair mechanism.
Over 80% of the patients who tested Dermalex Scalp Psoriasis noticed a 50% or better improvement in their symptoms
Psoriasis occurs when skin cells multiply too fast. Normally the skin renews itself every 3 or 4 weeks. In psoriasis sufferers it happens every 3 to 7 days. This overproduction breaks down the protective skin barrier, allowing the escape of moisture and the build-up of plaques of thick, scaling skin.
Symptoms include red and inflamed skin, often covered with loose, silver-coloured scales. The affected skin can be itchy and painful; sometimes it cracks and bleeds.
