My mother developed psoriasis about 4 months ago. She is being treated by a doctor, but none of the medications he has provided have worked so far. Her scalp is like one big scab and flakes, embarrassing her greatly.
Her dilemma is that she has not had her hair cut during this time...except cutting it herself. I tried to take her when this first started when she had a tiny red scab on her scalp but she wanted that to heal. Since then it has exploded all over her scalp. She has tried all the hair treatments with no result.
She is so embarrassed about her overgrown hair and needs to get it cut. How does she go about getting a haircut. She doesn't have a regular hairdresser...she just goes to an inexpensive place but usually after some time doesn't get a good cut and searches out another place.
Does she call a place and tell them about her condition. Does she just show up and tell them at the time. Or does she just go and keep her mouth shut. She's a little social phobic and afraid of going in the best of times. I wish I knew what to tell her.
