A.

I think you mean psoriasis, a common dermatological condition that can appear on any skin surface, including the scalp. I am not sure what the "inverse" part is, but then again, I am not a dermatologist.  So, to address your question: Yes, it is possible to have psoriasis on the scalp. There are many different medications, from steroid solutions to shampoos that can help; and there are prescription and over-the-counter medications to control the itching. Give your dermatologist a call and ask for some help.
