Scalp Psoriasis

Hi Doc,
I have a 14 year old daughter to has 2 patches of dry skin on her scalp. The doc prescribed a cortizone tablet - used the full course and it didnt work. We use Dovate ointment, and it takes it away within 3 days. The only problem is, when we stop using it, the patches come back. It looks like a build up of skin and it causes terrible dandruff.
Please advice what we can use to cure this thing, as the Denorex shampoo doesnt even work.
Thanks

hi
i would suggest a consult with a homeopath. You can try Magnolian sea buch thorn oil from Wings herbal they are based in Cape Town. add a few drops (like 3) of Rosemary essential oil to the sjampoo.

Kind regards
