Cosalic-K Solution is only meant for external use and should be used as advised by your doctor. A thin layer of the medicine should be applied only to the affected areas of the skin with clean and dry hands. Wash your hands before and after application of the medicine.

I beleive i have scalp psoriasis on my scalp and forehead. It's itchy and white dead skin falls out when scratched. This looks bad when in office. Initially i was confused with dandruff and used many anti-dandruff shampoos with no result. Please help. Also because of this, there is a wound like structure on my forehead. If scratched, dead white cells/skin falls out.
