Scalp Psoriasis

Does untreated scalp psoriasis on 8 year old can causes elevated white blood cell count or any other health complications?

Don't know what that is, but psoriasis is  an autoimmune disease, a form of arthritis.  Docs don't always get these diagnoses right and don't always even know what eczema or psoriasis is, but if it is psoriasis, again, your child has a health complication in that, but not necessarily causing any other problem.
