Eczema/Psoriasis

Eczema/Psoriasis
Eczema and Psoriasis both cause discomfort and the appearance of a rash, red skin or patches of dry skin.

Treatments for Eczema/Psoriasis

Eczema and Psoriasis have similar symptoms such as redness, a rash-like appearance, itching and dry patches of skin, they are however very different conditions.

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune condition and is influenced and activated by changes in your immune system. Although there are different types of psoriasis, the most common type diagnosed is plaque psoriasis which appears as large raised red, scaly, itchy marks mostly on the body, most commonly on the legs and elbows.

Eczema is an inflammation which is triggered by environmental factors such as allergies, dry weather and pollution. Some people inherit eczema genetically. Eczema appears as red and itchy marks on the skin that appear like an irritated rash. Often eczema’s irritation is more extreme that psoriasis and can lead to the breaking of the skin from scratching which can risk infection.

Both of these conditions must be identified by your doctor to determine the correct course of treatment to provide relief as psoriasis and eczema respond to different treatment.

SYMPTOMS of Eczema/Psoriasis

Symptoms of psoriasis or eczema can appear as raised red and itchy marks, scaly skin, cracked skin, plaques.
