Dear Leeny
One can use Betnovate scalp application or Denorex shampoo for the scalp. There are different creams available for the skin - usually one would start with the lowest strength and then work up to higher strengths if the lower one does not help. It is really worth the time and money to see a dermatologist as these medications are expensive, some are really messy and it is better to have someone look at the lesions and prescribe the best treatment depending on how big or bad the psoriasis patches are.
