Description

Tarsum® 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?

Every other therapeutic shampoo requires 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.

Directions

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.

Ingredients

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

 

WARNING

FAQs

Tarsum was designed for scalp use, but many dermatologists have patients apply it to other parts of the body (except the genital area, unless directed by your dermatologist) to reduce the scaling of psoriasis plaques. Tarsum used on other parts of the body should not be left on longer than an hour. Discontinue use if Tarsum causes irritation.
