What is Eczema?

Eczema is an extremely common skin condition. The skin condition is known to cause itchy, red, dry, and irritated skin. It is sometimes referred to as atopic dermatitis and usually infests during early childhood or even infancy and can prevail into adulthood. However, it is essential to note that one can encounter eczema at any stage of their life. While there are different kinds of eczema, the type can be determined by observing where the rash develops on your body.

What is Psoriasis?

Another skin condition that is quite similar to eczema is psoriasis. Psoriasis is referred to as a chronic autoimmune condition that provokes the quick buildup of skin cells. As a result of this buildup of cells, scaling occurs on the skin’s surface. In addition to scaling, inflammation and redness are common. Sometimes, these patches crack and bleed, which can be painful.

Causes of Eczema

Although the exact cause of eczema has not been determined, a few theories could be true. So, potential causes of eczema are:

 

  • Specific characteristics that cause the skin to become dry and more susceptible to irritants or infection
  • Genetic factors (family history)
  • A dysfunctional immune system could cause an inflammatory response in the skin

Causes of Psoriasis

Similar to eczema, doctors have yet to discover what causes psoriasis. However, according to decades of research, doctors have been able to deduce that there are two factors:

 

  • Genetic factors (family history)
  • Immune system

Symptoms of Eczema

While eczema has different symptoms that vary from person to person, the main symptom of eczema typically is itchy, flaky, dry, inflamed, and irritated skin. Eczema flare-ups occur, subside and the cycle repeats.

 

Other common symptoms are the following:

 

  • Harsh itching
  • Evident red-ish or brownish-grey patches
  • Small, raised bumps
  • Bumps that seep fluid when scratched or irritated
  • Crusty patches of dried yellow-ish ooze (typical signs of infection)
  • Thickened, scaled skin
  • Aching or raw-feeling skin

Symptoms of Psoriasis

Although psoriasis symptoms vary from person to person, a lot of symptoms tend to overlap. Moreover, the symptoms depend on the type of psoriasis one has. However, the most common symptoms of psoriasis include:

 

  • Inflamed patches of skin (red on pale skin and brown or purple on dark skin)
  • White to silver plaques on the red patches whereas greyish plaques on purple and brown patches
  • Extremely dry skin that cracks and bleeds
  • Patches with soreness surrounding it
  • Burning and itching sensations surrounding patches
  • Thick, rough nails
  • Painful, swollen and sore joints

What are triggers for eczema?

An eczema flare-up refers to when one or more eczema symptoms begin appearing on the skin. Common triggers of this skin condition are:

 

  • Chemicals or preservatives in cleansers and detergents
  • Products containing scents
  • Cigarette smoke
  • External allergens (for instance, pollens, mould, dust, or dust mites)
  • Rough, scratchy material found in clothing
  • Synthetic fabrics
  • Constant persipiration
  • Sudden or predicted temperature changes
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Food allergies
  • Animal dander (flecks of skin shed by animals)
  • Infections in the upper respiratory

Triggers of Psoriasis

External triggers that may indicate a start of a psoriasis flare-up are not the same for everyone, and they even change as time progresses. However, the most common triggers observed are:

 

  • Infection
  • Medicine
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Injury
  • Alcohol

Types of Eczemas

As mentioned before, there are a few different types of eczemas that individuals could encounter at any point in their lives. It is vital to be aware of the kind of eczema you are suffering with since treatment slightly varies according to the types. Following are the kinds of eczemas:

 

  1. Atopic Dermatitis       
  2. Contact Dermatitis
  3. Dyshidrotic Dermatitis
  4. Nummular Dermatitis

Types of Psoriasis

Similarly, there are five types of psoriasis.

 

  1. Plaque
  2. Guttate
  3. Pustular
  4. Inverse

Complications of Eczema?

Although it seems like eczema only affects the skin, it is known to disrupt the function of life. In fact, eczema can lead to multiple complications, including:

 

·         Trouble Sleeping

Due to eczema flare-ups, one can experience difficulty sleeping, which can disrupt your nightly routine.

·         Skin Infections

When one repeatedly scratches the area affected by eczema, it tends to leave your skin vulnerable to bacteria and viruses that lead to infections.

·         Asthma & Hay Fever

According to research, children younger than 12 with eczema are highly vulnerable to asthma or hay fever risks.

·         Thick & Rough Skin

 Due to constant scratching, your skin tends to become rough and thickens over time.

Complications of Psoriasis

People with psoriasis are at a greater risk of the following medical problems:

 

  • Psoriatic Arthritis
  • Eye Conditions
  • Obesity
  • Type 2 Diabetes
  • High Blood Pressure
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Other Autoimmune Diseases
  • Depression, Anxiety & Low-self esteem

What are Common Psoriasis and Eczema Treatments?

Moreover, due to the several different types of treatments, a suitable option is available for every patient. They include:

 

  • Moisturisers
  • Creams and Ointments
