Both eczema and psoriasis are types of dermatitis, which simply means "inflammation of the skin." Most types of dermatitis result in inflamed, red skin that is often itchy… and may develop into lesions. Eczema can include crusty sores, scabs, thickened skin, pimple-like eruptions, and sometimes even lesions. The skin can be either oozing or crusty and easily becomes infected. Eczema is considered more of a symptom than an actual disease, and is best treated by dealing with the underlying cause. Psoriasis produces reddish lesions with a characteristic silvery scaling that flakes off, causing the skin underneath to bleed. These scales are actually excess skin generated when certain substances in the body that are responsible for directing skin cell growth go out of control and make the cells grow too quickly-sometimes 1,000 times faster than the normal rate of growth. Psoriasis can be controlled by prescription drugs, but these are hard on the liver and therefore must be carefully administered, especially considering that impaired liver function is thought to contribute to psoriasis. The exact cause of these skin conditions is often difficult to determine. We do know that you are more prone to get them if you have thin, dry skin. According to researchers, dermatitis is often caused by allergies and sensitivities to particular foods. Eliminating the foods most likely to cause allergies often decreases eczema. Most people with eczema test positive to some type of allergy, have elevated levels of antibodies in their blood (a sign of an allergic reaction) and often do not have enough stomach acid, a common cause of food sensitivities. Secondary skin infections, which often occur with eczema, may need to be treated separately. People with psoriasis usually have high levels of polyamine, an undesirable, toxic type of amino acid that is formed during poor protein digestion, another cause of food sensitivities. A natural way to treat psoriasis is by exposure to direct sunlight and heat.
If one member of your family had psoriasis or still has then it is very probably to "get" psoriasis some day too. Actually, a person doesn't get psoriasis because it is writte…n in the genetic information so you can have it since the day you are born...it is not contagious so if your question was meant to mean if a person can get psoriasis just by touching a person with this condition then i can assure you that's impossible...if your question refers to triggers for psoriasis then i can tell you that stress is the most important in the list..then it comes streptococcus infections..in my case, i inherited the disease from my grandma and the triggers were stress and streptococcus infection.
Treating eczema should be done with diet. Most people who suffer from eczema usually are allergic to something in their environment or the food they eat. The key is to figur…e out what is causing your eczema in the first place. I suggest you keep a diary whenever you have flare-ups and take notes about what you were doing or eating at the time preceding the flare-up. Also, there is the paleo diet which many believe will not only cure your problem (via diet) but also has some beneficial things in regards to arthritis and other ailments.
Studies have proven that psoriasis is caused by 9 gene mutation. There are several types of things that trigger this kind of skin disorder. This includes drinking alcohol, str…ong family history, anxiety or stress.
The most common sign of psoriasis is a psoriasis plaque, a raised, red skin patch covered by a silvery-white coating. Eight out of 10 people with psoriasis have plaques. T…hese patches can form anywhere on your skin but are most likely to show up on your knees, elbows, lower back, and scalp. You may have several patches that join together to form a big patch. Plaques are itchy, but resist scratching them because scratching can make them become thicker. In at least half of the people who have psoriasis, the scalp is affected. Scalp psoriasis can range from mild, dandruff-like scaling to crusty plaques that extend beyond your hairline to your forehead or neck. This type of psoriasis can be very itchy. Using a medicated shampoo may help with scalp psoriasis. As many as half of all people with psoriasis experience nail changes caused by the condition. Changes in your nails may include pitting (holes), alterations in color and shape, thickening, and separation of the nail from the nail bed. About one in twenty people with psoriasis will have painful, stiff joints. This type of joint pain and swelling is called psoriatic arthritis. In many cases psoriatic arthritis affects only the fingers and toes. If you develop psoriatic arthritis, you will almost certainly experience nail changes. In rare cases, this form of arthritis can be severe and affect the joints in your spine as well. Psoriasis does not appear to directly cause any of these diseases, but it does put you at higher risk for developing them. Studies show that having psoriasis increases your risk of stroke and diabetes by about 40 percent. If you are 30 years old and you have severe psoriasis, your chances of having a heart attack are tripled. Take steps to lower your risk and protect your health by eating a heart-smart diet, getting regular exercise, and controlling your weight. Having psoriasis can be stressful. Studies show that people with psoriasis may have higher rates of depression and anxiety.
