Scalp psoriasis: When psoriasis forms on the scalp, it can creep beyond the scalp.

Scalp psoriasis: Overview

Psoriasis (sore-EYE-ah-sis) can appear anywhere on the skin. When it forms on the scalp, it is often called scalp psoriasis.

Scalp psoriasis can extend beyond the scalp. It can appear on the forehead as shown in the picture on this page. Sometimes, it extends to the back of the neck or appears behind the ears.

On the scalp, psoriasis may need different treatment. The skin on the scalp is thicker. Hair can get in the way.
