What Are Psoriasis and Eczema?
Psoriasis is a non-contagious chronic skin disorder characterized by abnormal cell growth.
Normal skin cells mature in 28 to 30 days, but with psoriasis, cells move from formation to the top of the skin in three to four days. The extra cells produced "heap up" to form elevated red skin & white, scaly lesions.
Eczema is a more superficial inflammation, mainly of outer skin layers. However, many symptoms appear similar to psoriasis, such as red rash, itching and scaling.
Types Of Treatment
Since there is no cure for psoriasis or eczema, the goal in treatment is to ease discomfort, reduce inflamation and slow the rapid psoriasis cell division.
Many treatments exist such as cortisone, steroids, but they must be prescribed by a doctor. A very effective over-the-counter solution is coal tar, which has been used for more than 100 years to treat psoriasis.
