According to Psoriasis Association UK, there are several types of psoriasis depending on the part of the body where it occurs:

- plaque psoriasis

- scalp psoriasis

- guttate psoriasis

- psoriasis in sensitive areas

- nail psoriasis

What type of psoriasis you have and how are your treating it?

I have scalp psoriasis and currently have been given a cream called 'Sebco' by the doctor. It hasn't eased it at all so far but going to keep trying it.

hi @KayleighLou92‍ have you tried any other cream? have you talked about this to your doc? I have also been using sebco for a while, and can't say it helps so thinking of asking my doctor for something different, more powerful..

hi i have psoriasis  over nearly 40% of my body including my feet hands buttocks legs head elbows even had it in the delicate areas why they say there are many different kinds is beyond me because it is connected with the auto immune system basically working over time which makes the skin just grow faster than normal some things help it and some do not most of the time what works one minute can cause a flare up the next .so most things tried are trial and error like with the scalp psoriasis i have found that head and shoulders shampoo helps so does the vosene medicated also using none perfumed soap  i found using the creams only fed it and made it worse so i just use the shampoo hope this helps
