Eczema and psoriasis are sometimes confused. There are similar symptoms, but there is at least one essential difference: psoriasis is a chronic inflammatory disease. It can come on at any time and the attacks are often more intense when there is stress or hypersensitivity to a particular item of clothing. While the epidermis cells normally renew themselves every 28 days, in someone with psoriasis this happens in five to six days. This causes symptoms such as red, demarcated spots with white, loose flakes and is often accompanied by itching.


If you want to be sure whether your skin condition is indeed psoriasis, you should contact a doctor or dermatologist. If it is indeed determined that it is psoriasis, a hormone ointment is often prescribed. The disadvantage is that you are not allowed to apply it every day. Nowadays there are all kinds of products available that can be used daily and with which you can keep psoriasis under control.

You can also ensure that the complaints do not get worse. For example, use a soft, neutral detergent and do not scratch too much if it itches. If you suffer from itching a lot, you can use a soothing ointment.


Search the internet - perhaps you have already done so and just came here - and you will see that there are many products that you can use against psoriasis. SkinEffects' golden tip is: provide daily care to give your skin a helping hand in the recovery process.
