I hope both the medicines have been prescribed by a dermatologist. Yes you can use. I usually advise it otherwise, moisturiser first followed by propysalic cream.

From your history, I can infer that you have developed folliculitis on your scalp which is common with the use of coal tar shampoos that was prescribed to you. You may need some additional medicines or change of medicines to control both the conditions.

In psoriasis immune system and genetics play major roles in its development. Usually, something triggers like stress, injury to the skin, medication allergies, diet and weather and psoriasis flares. The skin cells in people with psoriasis grow at an abnormally fast rate, which causes the buildup of psoriasis lesions. Psoriasis lesions are not infectious. Maintain skin hydration and follow treatment advised. Psoriasis treatments aim to stop skin cells from growing so quickly and to remove scales. Options include creams and ointments (topical therapy), light therapy (phototherapy), and oral or injected medication. Which treatments you use depends on how severe the psoriasis is and how responsive it has been to previous treatment. You might need to try different drugs or a combination of treatments before you find an approach that works for you. Usually, however, the disease returns. Though the treatment suggested is for fungal infection ,so kindly review in detail.

Hii, I would advise you to hold your medications temporarily for 15 days. You can resume your medications later on after consulting with your dermatologist. Also, you should discuss this with your dermatologist since he/ she would know the current status of your psoriasis. Wishing you a speedy recovery. Take care.
