What is Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel?
Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel is a treatment that helps to provide relief for the effects of scalp psoriasis. It works by helping the normalise skin cell production, which is the cause of psoriasis. Aside from normalising the cell production, this scalp gel also strengthens the skin’s natural barrier.
What causes scalp psoriasis?
Psoriasis on the scalp is caused by the same thing as any other form of psoriasis. Psoriasis is caused by skin cells being produced too quickly, which leaves excess skin. The reason for this is unknown, but it is believed to be caused by the immune system. It is said that psoriasis can run in the family, though the extent of this is not known. Psoriasis can become worse because of triggers. These will differ from person-to-person and can include certain soaps, medication, or injuries.
Who is this scalp gel suitable for?
This scalp gel is suitable to be used by adults and children aged 6 and over who are looking to treat psoriasis on the scalp. It should not be used by anyone who is allergic to the ingredients contained in the gel. If you are using any other form of medication, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist before using.
Can someone who is pregnant or breastfeeding use this scalp gel?
Anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding should consult a medical professional before using this scalp gel.
How should Dermalex Psoriasis Scalp Gel be used?
Apply a small amount of gel onto the scalp and gently massage it into the scalp in a circular motion. Let it dry and do not wash out. Use twice a day and reapply after washing your hair. If symptoms persist after using, speak to a doctor or Chemist 4 U pharmacist for advice.
