Psoriasis (as cause of hair loss)

Scaly hairline plaque extending backward onto scalp

Distinguish Psoriasis from Seb Derm:
  • Greasy = Seborrheic Derm /  silver-white scales = Psoriasis
  • Seborrheic Derm often descends to the eyebrows & cheeks
  • Psoriasis may also be elsewhere (extensor elbows, knees, heels, sacrum)

Treat both with topical Steroids
