I would like to address the doubting reviews with a possible explanation. A professional shampoo includes two washes-one to wash off the surface oil and dirt and one following to cleanse the scalp. If this product did not work, it may be that it was used for only a surface wash and never got to its intended destination. Personally, i use a good everyday shampoo and briefly wash my hair, avoiding my scalp, rinse, then apply the Dermarest shampoo to my scalp, massaging it thoroughly (NO FINGERNAILS) and let it sit for 5 minutes before rinse.

This shampoo has worked fabulously for my psoriasis when nothing else has, and that without damaging my already dry hair or smelling like burning paper pulp. The effect even lasts two days if i have shampooed properly, more if i take the time to daily apply a direct scalp treatment between shampoos. I highly recommend this to someone with a stubborn, scaly, itchy scalp problem.

Each psoriasis shampoo contains a different ingredient. Some people respond better to certain ingredients than others. This shampoo didn't work very well for me. It was able to keep my psoriasis from being super bad but I still had many itchy patches of flaking skin around my hairline. I would wash with my regular shampoo first to get rid of oils and then use this shampoo and leave in for 5 minutes.
I suppose it works for some but it isn't a cure all for everyone. I find that Selsun 2.5% works wonders for me. I had to stop using it while pregnant and breastfeeding so that's why I turned to Dermarest. I'll be happy when I can use Selsun again.

      I don't think this shampoo did much for me. I only have a slight case of psoriasis and I know everyone is unique, so I think I will try something different...I believe there is a tar shampoo rather than salycic acid.

      Comments about Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner, 8 fl oz:

      I was a little leery to use this shampoo at first as it states that it has a built in conditioner. I have had really bad experiences with that type of product as my hair is very thick and wavy-curly.
      This shampoo was completely different- first off there is no odor to the shampoo at all, definite plus! And yes, while my hair does feel under conditioned after shampooing, I just add a very small amount of a spray on de-tangler and yesterday I used a small amount of styling lotion that also worked great as a de-tangler.
      I have also noticed a decreased in the plaques around my hairline, I have only used the product a handful of times, but I have a feeling that as I continue to use it my hair will continue to respond positively!

        this helped change my condition in two days. I had scalp itch and itchy eyelids and face. This shampoo controls that completely! Wish I had found it sooner. Along with dermarest eczema cream I no longer have a problem.

          Comments about Dermarest Psoriasis Medicated Shampoo Plus Conditioner, 8 fl oz:

          This shampoo really helped my seborrhic dermatitis/psoriasis of the scalp. I continue to use it as my only shampoo because the thick clear liquid is gentle on my hair, neutral in odor and doesn't feel medicinal. I need to use it regularly to keep the nasty crust from forming on my scalp, and it doesn't take away all plaques. But those that remain can easily be treated with the steriod solution prescribed by my dermatologist. Together, these two products have almost eliminated my problem, and I never thought I would be able to say that.

              I have scalp psoriasis and big time problem with scales on my scalp. It took almost 6 months to get rid of but I did. I used a combination of three shampoos - one with zinc, regular shampoo, and then the Dermarest shampoo that I feel was responsible in getting rid of the scales. I will continue to use this shampoo to keep the scales off my scalp.

                Recently, I've developed seborrheic dermatitis and this shampoo keeps the crusting/rashing at bay. You have to use it consistently in order for it to perfrom to it's full potential, so be willing to accept this product as your only shampoo option. I find it gentle and non-stripping on my naturally curly African-American hair. With usage up to 3 times a week, my hair is never parched and the scaling is controlled!

                  This is the best shampoo & conditioner that I have ever tried for psoriasis. I had such a bad case over the winter that I even had RX shampoo. But this shampoo worked even better than that. I was a Denorex (no conditioner) user, but that didn't help my problem at all. This was a perfect shampoo for my Psoriasis.

                    If you have an itchy, flaking scalp, or scalp psoriasis, you need to try this product. I have tried everything over the years, from over the counter to prescription meds, and nothing has really helped. Regular use of Dermarest (down to once or twice a week) has essentially cured my scalp itch and flaking. I can wear dark colors again and not be embarassed by flakes.
