Best shampoo for scalp psoriasis?

My oldest daughter has scalp psoriasis. She has a hard time with chemical-smelling shampoos, they make her nauseous. Last year we found a great all-natural shampoo that worked wonders. But now that it's fall and the psoriasis is acting up, I can't find taht shampoo anymore. I don't even remember the name.

So this year I need a new miracle :) Anyone have suggestions for a good shampoo to keep psoriasia under control?
Bonus- anyone know a tear-free variety? It looks like my little one may be developing it too.

  • T-gel    You could also ask at a health food store or your local pharmacist

  • Nizoral, there is prescription strength and over the counter strength. It has ketoconazole in it that helps heal the inflammation of scalp psoriasis or seborrhea. Walgreens carries it.
