In fact, researchers estimate that at least half of the people who have plaque psoriasis have it on their scalp.

While these medications can come in many forms, including shampoos, lotions, sprays and oils, the most popular are solutions, which are liquid-based, and foams.

To help raise awareness of skin cancer prevention and detection, 12 dermatologists, skin cancer survivors, and their family and friends will tell “Skin Cancer, Take a Hike!” during a four-day trek through remote Alaska.
