  • Psoriasis Vulgaris

    Psoriasis typically causes patches of skin that are dry, red and covered in silver scales. Some people find their psoriasis causes itching or soreness.

    There are several different types of psoriasis. Many people have only 1 form at a time, although 2 different types can occur together. One form may change into another or become more severe.

    Most cases of psoriasis go through cycles, causing problems for a few weeks or months before easing or stopping.

    You should see a GP if you think you may have psoriasis.

    Scalp psoriasis

    This can occur on parts of your scalp or on the whole scalp. It causes red patches of skin covered in thick, silvery-white scales.

    Some people find scalp psoriasis extremely itchy, while others have no discomfort.

    In extreme cases, it can cause hair loss, although this is usually only temporary.

  • Side Effects

    While Dithrocream is working, some skin redness and a feeling of mild ‘sunburn’ at the site of application is quite normal, indicating that it is working. If excessive burning or soreness occurs, this usually means that the strength being used is too high or that the cream is being left in contact with the skin for too long. If this happens, treatment should be stopped at once and the dosage reviewed by your doctor. Your doctor may advise you to use a lower strength, to apply it for shorter contact periods or to apply it less often.

    Like all medicines, Dithrocream can cause other side effects, although not everybody gets them:

    If you mistakenly allow the cream to spread onto, and remain in contact with, areas of normal skin (see precautions in section 3b), it is more likely to cause burning and soreness.
    Temporary staining of the skin or hair can occur. However, this will gradually go away after treatment has stopped.
    On very rare occasions allergic reactions to the ingredients can occur. These may result in local skin inflammation, itching and redness, in which case treatment with Dithrocream should be stopped.
    Any staining caused by getting the cream on your clothes, bed linen, fabrics, plastics or other materials is likely to be permanent
