Exploring Different Treatment Options
Eczema and psoriasis are both chronic diseases that need long-term care. The intensity of the symptoms, as well as the size and location of the affected patch of skin, may influence treatment.
Some common treatments include:
- Topical anti-inflammatory creams (such as corticosteroids)
- Moisturizing skin lotions
- Biologic or systemic medications
Aside from these treatments, staying away from things that could trigger your skin to react differently should also be considered.
Psoriasis and eczema can both cause dry skin, rashes, and itching. However, because the symptoms frequently overlap and coincide even in the places where they develop, they can be difficult to identify and distinguish from one another.
The first step to defining psoriasis and eczema difference is through seeking medical assistance. Consult a dermatologist when the itch persists for several days. They can help you detect the said difference based on its feel and appearance, the severity of the itch, and where it appears on the skin.
