Eczema and Psoriasis

Eczema and Psoriasis

Eczema is a skin condition that makes your skin red and inflamed. It may be scaly, oozing, or crusty. You may see rough, leathery patches that are sometimes dark. It can also cause swelling.

Psoriasis can also cause red patches. They may be silvery and scaly and raised. But if you look closely, the skin is thicker and more inflamed than with eczema.

How Psoriasis & Eczema Feel Different?

Eczema causes an intense itch. It can get so bad that you scratch enough to make your skin bleed.

Psoriasis could also be itchy, but there's something extra going on. Your skin may sting or burn.
