You’ve noticed a red raised rash on your leg or even on your face – now what? How can you alleviate those itching, burning and painful spots appearing on your body? And how do you know if this is something more serious than your average rash like eczema or even psoriasis?
Psoriasis vs Eczema
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disorder associated with symptoms such as patches of scaly skin mostly effecting the elbows, neck, face, palms and soles of the feet. Eczema, on the other hand, is a superficial inflammatory condition akin to an allergy usually marked by redness, itching, oozing and crusting. It is also called atopic dermatitis.
Is psoriasis contagious?
Because psoriasis is autoimmune in nature, it is not contagious and is not affected by allergens in the air, grass or fabrics worn by the individual. Eczema is also not contagious but, in contrast to psoriasis, it can be affected by dyes, fabrics, soaps, animals and other irritants.
In which ways does psoriasis look different than eczema?
In appearance, psoriasis shows itself as silvery white scaly skin because of the overproduction of skin cells. The dry skin becomes inflamed and red, causing severe itching. While eczema makes the skin red and inflamed too, it also appears along with pus, blisters, peeling and cracking.
How do I relieve psoriasis symptoms?
Now here’s the crux of it: Both are commonly treated with topical corticosteroid cream, which causes a thinning of the skin and can be carcinogenic when used over time.
Using both white curcumin cream (See Ageless Cures AC Derma White Curcumin Cream) and taking curcumin orally (See Ageless Cures Super Curcumin 1000mg + Bioperine) is a natural alternative that has shown to be effective in clinical trials. Since psoriasis and eczema share the core issue of inflammation, curcumin’s powerful anti-inflammatory properties attack inflammation on the skin and at the cellular level in the body. Therefore, curcumin has a double benefit without any of the negative side effects of conventional treatments.
