Feel more Comfortable and Confident in Your Skin!

This professional strength, proven effective scalp shampoo is the only therapeutic shampoo designed to be applied BEFORE bathing. Its special applicator tip allows you to put Tarsum directly on psoriasis plaques. You treat your scalp, not your hair!

Why is this better?

Tarsum shampoo is twice the strength of the leading coal tar brand and other therapeutic brands require you to dilute the medication and stand around the shower with a headful of lather to receive treatment.

Applying Tarsum directly to the scalp before bathing allows you full strength, undiluted treatment exactly where you need it most and better control over the amount of time you treat your scalp.

Tarsum maximizes treatment time and minimizes shower time

Use Tarsum’s applicator tip to apply Tarsum directly to the affected areas of the scalp. Leave Tarsum on for a short period (while you brush your teeth, shave, eat breakfast, watch TV etc.) for up to an hour before bathing.

When you are ready to remove Tarsum, simply add water, work Tarsum into a lather, and rinse as you would any shampoo. Tarsum produces a thick lather with water. You may need to add a little more Tarsum if you pretreated only a small area on your scalp.


Tarsum can be used as both a before bathing scalp treatment as well as a shampoo.

  1. For use as a treatment before bathing, twist applicator tip and apply directly to the affected areas.
  2. Leave on for 5 minutes, gradually increasing the time to 1 hour or as directed by a doctor.
  3. Rinse Tarsum out thoroughly with water.
  4. To use as a shampoo, apply Tarsum to wet hair and leave in for up to 10 minutes then rinse.
  5. Use daily until the flaking and itching are under control.


10% L.C.D. (coal tar solution) and an exfoliating beta hydroxyacid in a shampoo base.

    I am new to this product. My dermatologist recommended it to me. I was using a Coal Tar Shampoo, an OTV purchase but the drug stores are no longer stocking it.
