Psoriasis & Eczema Treatment Guide For Adults

Discover the natural way to treat and manage the symptoms of Psoriasis and Eczema.

Psoriasis and eczema cause red, itchy dry skin and sometimes appear so similar that it’s even tough for doctors to tell the difference between the two.

ECZEMA

ECZEMA, also known as A-Topic Dermatitis, causes patches that are red or brown gray in color. However, sometimes the areas may be different and appear as small, raised bumps. They can have a “crust” on them and leak fluid.  Children tend to experience eczema at greater rates than adults. 

The first signs of eczema are redness, rash, swelling and intense itching.  You may see dark, rough, leathery patches that can peel, or it may blister and ooze.

Eczema patches usually appear on the “bends” of the skin such as the inner elbows and behind the knees, but it can appear on the neck, wrists, and ankles.  Children and infants can have it on their scalp, forehead, cheeks, chest, back arms and legs.

CONTACT DERMATITIS – This is not to be confused with contact dermatitis that is caused when skin comes in contact with an irritant or allergen.  The symptoms of contact dermatitis are redness, burning, swelling and itching and it usually appears on the body part that came in contact with the irritant or allergen.

PSORIASIS

PSORIASIS tends to cause thick, red, and scaly patches that are usually well-defined.  Psoriasis is a condition that occurs when a person’s immune system triggers skin cells to grow faster than they usually should. Instead of the dead skin cells coming off the skin, they build up on the skin. Psoriasis is more common in adults; however, children have been known to have it.

There are many types of psoriasis and the symptoms vary from mild to severe, depending on the type.  Plaque psoriasis is the most common.  

Plaque psoriasis can appear as thick patches with red inflamed skin and silvery scales.  The plaques tend to vary in size, and they can appear on the skin as a single patch or joined together to cover a large area of the skin.  Your most likely to find them on elbows, knees, lower back, scalp and buttock, however they appear over the entire body.

No matter the size, plaques tend to be itchy.  Without proper treatment and management, the itch can become intense. Some people notice that their skin cracks, stings, burns, or feels painful and tight.

Psoriasis can also affect the nails causing discoloration, thickening and pitting.  Fifty percent of people with plaque psoriasis are likely to experience a flare up of scalp psoriasis, plaques on their scalp.  It’s also associated with psoriatic arthritis, which causes swelling and pain in the joints.

There is no topical cure for psoriasis.  While the plaques may come and go, the condition will always be there until you minimize or eliminate the root cause.

Repair, Restore and Heal Skin
Moisturizing Treatments for Psoriasis

Moisturizers are beneficial to everyone with psoriasis and eczema and we encourage you to use them daily.  People with psoriasis and eczema suffer with very dry skin that needs moisture, especially during the dry winter months or in drier climates.  Drier conditions such as cold weather and dry heat inside homes and buildings can exasperate the condition. 

If you have psoriasis or eczema you need to moisturize you skin as often as possible, especially during the winter months.  If you are one of the lucky ones that finds some relief during the summer months, you should continue to moisturize and protect your skin.

Moisturizers will not cure plaque psoriasis or eczema, but they keep it under control by hydrating skin.  Moisturizing helps relive the itching, irritation and pain while reducing the dryness, inflammation, and scaling.  All-natural moisturizers heal and repair while keeping skin soft, supple and smooth.

To get the most from your moisturizer, moisturize immediately after a bath or shower while the skin is still moist.  Apply moisturizers throughout the day and always reapply before getting into bed.
