I am suffering from dry, scaly patches on the scalp for the last six to eight months. Since childhood, I have severe dandruff, mild itching and hair fall. I consulted two doctors. First one said that it may by scalp psoriasis and the other told that it looks like some fungal infection. I am using Salisia KT shampoo. I do not have scales on any other parts of my body. I am worried by thinking it may be scalp psoriasis. I can easily remove the scales present on the hairline. Please suggest. Thank you in advance

Thank you doctor,
None of the members in my family have psoriasis. I have a lot of anxiety. I used to get tense for even a small thing. It will start to itch when I think of it. Also, at least once in a month, I will have a throat infection. I do not itch on my back or face. It is very rare. In fact, it all started when I start to work. I changed my work location and so, I will be in AC all time. I also do not find any red patches under the scale.

Thank you for the prompt and complete reply.
Now, I can confidently say that you do not have psoriasis. It is just seborrheic dermatitis or severe dandruff in common language.
