Recently, Elorac, the skincare specialists, has discovered an innovative approach to harness the effectiveness of anthralin — one of the most trusted and effective treatments for psoriasis — in targeting scalp psoriasis.
Zithranol Shampoo encapsulates anthralin to create a revolutionary shampoo therapy that treats scalp psoriasis effectively while moisturizing dry skin.1
It is also the first prescription shampoo for scalp psoriasis that works quickly. A person only needs to leave Zithranol Shampoo on for a minimum of three minutes to effectively treat plaque psoriasis.
When used three to four times a week — either by itself or in combination with other products — Zithranol Shampoo has been shown to help people achieve remission from scalp psoriasis quickly and for a longer time period.

It's important to follow directions carefully when using Zithranol Shampoo. Watch the short video on how to use Zithranol Shampoo. Or continue reading below.
Step 1: Lather
Wet hair then massage Zithranol Shampoo onto scalp. Work into a gentle lather. Leave on the scalp for at least 3 minutes or as directed by your healthcare provider.
Step 2: Rinse
Rinse with lukewarm water (do not use very hot water). Although no additional shampoo is necessary to cleanse the hair, a non-medicated conditioner can be used following Zithranol Shampoo, if desired.
Step 3: Done
You're done! Before leaving the shower, make sure you rinse off any shampoo residue on the tiles or floor to reduce the possibility of discoloration to the shower. You can dry or style your hair as you normally do.
