Difference Between Eczema and Psoriasis...

What’s the Difference Between Eczema and Psoriasis?

It’s often hard for people to tell the difference between eczema and psoriasis. They are both very complicated skin conditions that can cause red, itchy skin but have different triggers. Here are a few ways to differentiate the two:


  • Inflamed red patches
  • Intense itch
  • Often scaly, crusty, or oozing
  • Typically shows up in the "bends" of skin - such as crooks of knees and elbows
  • Hypersensitivity reaction
  • Common triggers:
    • Things that are irritating to your skin
      • Soaps
      • Disinfectants
      • Detergents
    • Your diet
    • Things that cause allergies
    • Humidity
    • Stress
  • Common in children and infants
    • Many people outgrow the hypersensitivity by early adulthood


  • Thick, scaly red or silvery-white patches
  • Mild itching
  • Typically shows up on:
    • Knees
    • Elbows
    • Palms
    • Face
    • Scalp
    • Lower back
  • Chronic autoimmune condition that results in overproduction of skin cells
  • Common triggers:
    • Infections
    • Stress
    • Sunburn
    • Scratches
    • Certain medications
    • Cold weather
  • Typically shows up between ages 15 and 35.

Eczema and psoriasis are typically treated similarly. Barrier creams are often useful to protect skin from infections and irritants to allow the skin to heal.
