Eczema and psoriasis are both common skin conditions that can cause dryness, itchiness, and inflammation. However, there are some key differences between the two conditions. Eczema typically begins in childhood, while psoriasis can occur at any age. Additionally, while eczema is not usually serious, psoriasis can lead to other health complications like psoriatic arthritis. There is no cure for either condition, but there are treatments available that can help improve symptoms and calm flare-ups. If you think you or your child may have eczema or psoriasis, make an appointment with our doctor to get a proper diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
What is Eczema?
Eczema is a general term for a group of conditions that cause the skin to become inflamed or irritated. The most common type of eczema is atopic dermatitis, which usually starts in childhood. People with atopic dermatitis often have a family history of allergies or asthma. Eczema can cause the skin to be dry, itchy, red, and cracked. It can also lead to infection if the skin is cracked or open. While there is no cure for eczema, it can be managed with moisturizers, anti-itch creams, corticosteroid creams, immunosuppressant drugs, and light therapy.
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that causes the rapid buildup of skin cells. This buildup forms patches of thick, scaly skin that can be itchy and painful. Psoriasis commonly occurs on the knees, elbows, scalp, lower back, face, palms, and soles of the feet. It can also cause nails to become yellowish-brown and pitted. There is no cure for psoriasis, but it can be managed with medication, phototherapy, stress reduction techniques, and healthy lifestyle choices
