Is this Psoriasis, or is this Eczema?

Identifying Psoriasis

Psoriasis

Psoriasis

I have a serious issue… I’ve had this spot on the back of my head for literally 6 years now. I have been to two doctors, the first said it was psoriasis, the second said it may be eczema or psoriasis.

To be honest, I’m a little scared. I know Psoriasis and Eczema are both incurable, but psoriasis can cause health issues, plus it makes you look like a diseased creature and I’m going to be an Officer one day. Who wants Officer Scaleyskin showing up to their domestic violence, and how will people take me seriously?

If it’s eczema, I feel better about that because it’s confined to one spot and doesn’t pose any health issues. If anyone here has either of the skin conditions, please take a look and let me know what you think.

Psoriasis or Eczema ailment?

1) Had this on my head for 6 years.
2) No real spread, it’s stayed local. Only recently has it got bigger.
3) I have scale rashes in my ear, and a small spot on the groin. These have not gone away or got worse in the last year. They started about February.

Other than that, I have no real “symptoms” of Psoriasis, but the spotting doesn’t seem like Eczema.

The black circle area is the small area it first started. I was using a psoriasis treatment liquid up until about 4 months ago, and until then it has never been the left HALF of my head, it was just that one palm sized area… Also, now-a-days it looks rashy, which is a symptom of Eczema, but it looks like Psoriasis… CONFUSED!!

Facts and Information on Psoriasis

  1. To reduce dry skin and help psoriasis symptoms, it is sensible to not use shower scrubs, as they not only hurt skin by leaving tiny scratches, they also scrape off the naturally occurring skin oil.
  2. Although anti-inflammatory solutions may relieve signs of the illness they do not solve the underlying affliction and may not be the best option for cure.
  3. There may be severe variation between patients in the effectiveness of specific psoriasis treatments and, as a result of this, dermatologists often use a trial-and-error approach to working out the most appropriate treatment for their patient.
  4. It has long been recognized that prevalent, short, non-burning exposure to the sun helps to reduce or improve psoriasis.
  5. Psoriasis is often a lifelong condition; there is currently no cure but numerous treatments can help to reduce the symptoms that affect the patient.
  6. Psoriasis can become worse over time but it is not possible to predict who will go on to develop extensive psoriasis or those in whom the disease may appear to recede.
  7. The scaly patches caused by psoriasis, known as psoriatic plaques, are points of inflammation and intensive skin production where skin rapidly accumulates.
  8. Psoriasis plaques usually occur around the skin of our elbows and knees, but can affect any area such as the scalp and genitals.
  9. Psoriasis is a serious recurring illness which varies in severity from minor localized patches to complete body coverage. Fingernails and toenails are often affected.
  10. Psoriasis may also cause inflammation of the joints, which is called psoriatic arthritis. Ten to fifteen percent of patients with psoriasis suffer from psoriatic arthritis.

All About Psoriasis.

Facts and Information about Psoriasis

  1. One belief considers psoriasis as essentially a condiotion of excessive growth and reproduction of skin cells. The problem is simply considered as a fault of the epidermis.
  2. One belief sees the disease as being an immune-mediated illness in which the rapid reproduction of skin cells is next to factors induced by the immune system.
  3. Psoriasis occurs more frequently in dry skin than oily or well-moisturized skin, and essentially after an external skin injury such as a graze or cut.
  4. To reduce dry skin and cut down on psoriasis symptoms, it is advised to not use shower scrubs, as they not only harm skin by leaving tiny scratches, they also scrape off the naturally occurring skin oil.
  5. Although anti-inflammatory solutions can relieve symptoms of the illness they do not solve the underlying affliction and may not be the right option for cure.
  6. There could be substantial variation between people in the effectiveness of specific psoriasis treatments and, because of this, dermatologists often use a trial-and-error approach to finding the most appropriate treatment for their patient.
  7. It has long been recognized that frequent, short, non-burning exposure to the sun helps to slow down or improve psoriasis.
  8. Psoriasis is frequently a lifelong problem; there is currently no cure but a number of treatments can help to alleviate the symptoms that affect the victim.
  9. Psoriasis can worsen over time but it is very difficult to predict which patients will go on to develop serious psoriasis or those in whom the disease may appear to vanish.
  10. A diagnosis of psoriasis is usually based on the look of the skin; there are no specific blood tests or diagnostic methods for psoriasis.

Psoriasis Awareness Month Honored by 3,000 Dermatologists Using Vivacare

Psoriasis Awareness Month Honored by 3,000 Dermatologists Using Vivacare

Biologics for Psoriasis Treatment

 

Berkeley, CA (PRWEB) August 1, 2010

Psoriasis is a chronic skin disorder affecting as many as 7.5 million Americans and, in honor of Psoriasis Awareness Month, dermatologists are providing their patients with online access to in-depth resources to educate them about psoriasis treatment options.

 

The National Psoriasis Foundation has designated August as National Psoriasis Month. In support of this public awareness effort, Vivacare has expanded its psoriasis education resources made available to over 3,000 dermatologists who use Vivacare’s ‘From Your Doctor’ patient education service.

 

Dermatologists use Vivacare to enhance their own practice Websites with customizable patient handouts, patient eNewsletters, and other resources to help patients better understand and manage their skin conditions. They can now supplement their practice Website with new patient handouts about psoriasis and its treatment.

 

Vivacare has expanded its patient education resources to include information about the different types of psoriasis (plaque psoriasis, guttate psoriasis and others), phototherapy (PUVA and UVB phototherapy), topical medications (corticosteroids, Tazorac, Vectical, oral medications (cyclosporine, methotrexate, Soriatane) and the new biologic medications (Amevive, Enbrel, Humira, Remicade, Stelara).

 

The psoriasis content includes references from the National Psoriasis Foundation so that patients learn more about this research, education and advocacy organization dedicated to improving the lives of people with psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis.

 

“Vivacare helps doctors to educate their patients”, said Dr. Mark Becker, President of Vivacare. ‘We make it easy for doctors to direct patients to relevant and practical health information that supports the doctor’s clinical perspective and professional approach to care.’ Dr. Becker added that ‘by providing dermatologists with in-depth resources about psoriasis, we help them inform their communities about this under diagnosed skin condition and the availability of safe and effective treatments.’

 

Psoriasis leads to red, scaly patches on the skin that can worsen in episodes called “flares”. The severity of a psoriasis flare can range from mild to severe and can, at times, be disfiguring and even life-threatening. The scaling and unpleasant appearance of psoriasis lesions (especially if left untreated) can cause embarrassment and be a significant source of anxiety or depression. There are five types of psoriasis, each defined by the type of skin lesions that appear with plaque psoriasis being the most common. The recommended treatment for an individual varies depending upon the type of psoriasis, its location, its severity, results of previous treatments, and possible side effects.

Vivacare is a patient education company based in Berkeley, California that makes it easy for medical professionals to share practical health information with their patients, leading to improved clinical care and patient satisfaction.
