Pictures of scalp psoriasis are available online at Healthline.com and Mayoclinic.com. Scalp psoriasis is a skin condition characterized by reddish, raised and scaly patches, explains WebMD. It can affect the whole scalp and spread to the forehead or behind the ears. The cause of this condition is not clear yet.
Mild scalp psoriasis may only show fine scaling and can be unnoticeable, notes WebMD. When the condition becomes moderate or severe, it causes itching, soreness, hair loss, red patches and dry scalp. Several factors contribute to hair loss, including harsh treatments, stress and scratching the affected parts. The initial treatment options include gels, soaps, ointments, oils and creams.
