Dermalex Scalp Psoriasis Information
What is Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel?
Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel is an effective treatment for dry, scaly, itchy plaques of the skin caused by psoriasis on the scalp. This product has been designed especially for ease of use on hair-covered skin. It is quickly absorbed and non-greasy and is perfect for treating even the most sensitive skin.
This treatment is suitable for children and adults over the age of 6 years and can be used for long-term treatment of scalp psoriasis. Dermalex is applied directly to your scalp without the need to worry about it discolouring or being visible in your hair, making it an excellent treatment for daily use.
What is Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel used for?
Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel is used to treat the scaling, itching and plaques of dry skin caused by psoriasis that specifically affects your scalp.
About half of all people affected by psoriasis suffer from scalp psoriasis, which can include not only the scalp but also the hairline, forehead, back of the neck and behind the ears. The affected skin will often appear dry, flaky and powdery and have a silver sheen.
Scalp psoriasis, along with other forms of psoriasis, is relatively harmless, however, it can cause the skin to become itchy or irritated and can make some people feel self-conscious or embarrassed.
If you are not sure whether you are suffering from scalp psoriasis it is advisable to speak to a doctor or pharmacist before using this treatment.
How does Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel work?
Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel contains the ingredient Magneolite, which helps to relieve symptoms of psoriasis by speeding up the process of skin repair to restore and lock in moisture in the skin and calms irritation. It also has anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory properties to help prevent infection.
