Eczema, Psoriasis & Dermatitis Online

If you suffer from itchy, red and dry skin, you've probably tried every cream, ointment and lotion on the market to treat your Eczema, Psoriasis & Dermatitis. But if you've tried it all and can't calm your itchy skin, it might be because there's another skin condition that can have visually similar symptoms and your eczema cream probably won't work for it. It's called psoriasis.

Eczema, Psoriasis & Dermatitis are like twins — they have a similar look, but deep down, they are fundamentally different.

How do Psoriasis and Eczema Feel Different?

Eczema causes excruciating itching. It could get so bad that you scratch yourself until you start bleeding.

Psoriasis, although there is a secondary ailment present, can also itch. It could sting or burn on your skin. Some remark that it feels like fire ants are biting you.

Dry, scaly skin can be a symptom of both psoriasis and eczema. However, the underlying causes and available therapies vary. In contrast to eczema, which frequently flares up in reaction to specific triggers, psoriasis is an autoimmune disease.

When the immune system forces skin cells to increase more quickly than usual, psoriasis develops, and dead skin cells collect on the skin's surface rather than shedding naturally.

Atopic dermatitis, another name for eczema, is characterized by itching, dryness, rashes, and swelling. The reason is still unknown to medical specialists.

Although both illnesses can result in flushed, irritated, and itchy skin, their origins and treatments vary. We go into more detail about the parallels and differences below.
