Eczema & Psoriasis

Eczema and psoriasis are common skin conditions that can leave the skin dry, inflamed, cracked, and itchy. They are usually long term conditions, but symptoms can be managed or even cleared completely.

Psoriasis patches usually appear around the elbows, knees, lower back and scalp but can occur anywhere. The appearance is red and flaky with scaly patches.


Eczema can also make skin red, itchy, dry and cracked. It can affect anywhere on the body but more commonly occurs around the inside of elbows, hands, face, scalp and backs of the knees. 


Eczema and psoriasis are often treated with topical treatments and creams that soothe the affected area and can visibly reduce symptoms. 


Pharmacy Online offers a range of topical treatments for eczema and psoriasis. Speak to one of our experts or start a consultation today to order your prescription online.

Causes

There are no known causes of eczema, but it has been suggested that is caused due to allergies which can irritate the skin. It usually runs in families, and can often develop alongside hay fever.

The cause of psoriasis is slightly more understood. It is thought that the immune system attacks healthy cells of the body, particularly skin cells, resulting in an increased production of skin cells which causes psoriatic plaques.

Treatments

There is no cure for eczema or psoriasis. Still, there are treatment options available to help relieve the symptoms of flare-ups.

Symptoms

Symptoms tend to vary between eczema and psoriasis. Eczema symptoms include itchy, dry, or red patches over the body. Psoriasis typically causes patches of skin that are dry, red and covered in silver scales. Some people find their psoriasis causes itching or soreness.
