    Derma-Smoothe Scalp/FS is a prescription medication that's used to treat psoriasis of the scalp. Derma-Smoothe Scalp/FS is a type of medication called a topical corticosteroid, and it works by reducing the effect of irritants that cause the scalp to become itchy, red, and irritated.

    Derma-Smoothe Scalp/FS comes as an oil that's applied to the scalp. To use it, wet your hair and scalp and apply a thin layer of Derma-Smoothe Scalp/FS. Massage the scalp well, and then cover it with a shower cap (provided along with the medication). Leave Derma-Smoothe Scalp/FS on your scalp for at least four hours, or even overnight. Then wash your hair with shampoo and rinse thoroughly. Derma-Smoothe Scalp/FS is usually used every day for two weeks, but always use it exactly as directed by your doctor.
