I’ve got red, dry, itchy skin and a persistent rash. Do I have eczema or psoriasis Eczema usually arises before you start school. Psoriasis tends to show up in adulthood. I’ve had this since adolescence. So I guess it could be either one. Psoriasis tends to occur on the thicker skin on the body, such as on the palm, elbows, knees, soles of the feet, face and scalp. Eczema tends to occur on the face, neck, knees, ankles and the inside of the elbow. So both can cause rashes on my face, but only eczema will occur on my feet.
Kind of. Psoriasis and eczema both get worse with stress and when you’re immune system is flared up when fighting a disease. Do they have the same cause Psoriasis is primarily an autoimmune disorder. Eczema tends to be an allergic reaction. How can I tell the difference Without paying to see a doctor. Eczema sometimes causes lesions and blisters, which is rarely seen with psoriasis. Eczema may have moist pustules, while psoriasis is always dry. Gross, gross, gross. I feel like I’ve got the plague. There’s a lot you can do. Both eczema and psoriasis can be improved by using moisturizing.
Creams. Oh, man, I’ll end up smelling like a girl. They’ve got eczema creams for babies, so you could just hit the baby aisle. And antihistamines help eczema. So I need to get drugged up on Benadryl. My parents gave that to me as a kid to make me sleep. I guess it’s better than brandy. A doctor can prescribe ointments to treat either condition, no matter what you have. I just want to walk around during the day without wanting to wear a Phantom of the Opera mask. You should walk in the light of the sun. UV light can help clear up both.
