What does eczema look and feel like?

Although eczema may look different from person to person, it is most often characterized by dry, red, extremely itchy patches on the skin. Eczema is sometimes referred to as "the itch that rashes," since the itch, when scratched, results in the appearance of the rash.


Eczema can occur on just about any part of the body; however, in infants, eczema typically occurs on the forehead, cheeks, forearms, legs, scalp, and neck. In children and adults, eczema typically occurs on the face, neck, and the insides of the elbows, knees, and ankles. In some people, eczema may "bubble up" and ooze. In others, the condition may appear more scaly, dry, and red.

What is Psoriasis?


Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin condition. There are five types, each with unique signs and symptoms. Between 10% and 30% of people who develop psoriasis get a related form of arthritis called "psoriatic arthritis," which causes inflammation of the joints.


Plaque psoriasis is the most common type of psoriasis. About 80% of people who develop psoriasis have plaque psoriasis, which appears as patches of raised, reddish skin covered by silvery-white scale. These patches, or plaques, frequently form on the elbows, knees, lower back, and scalp. However, the plaques can occur anywhere on the body.

Treatment depends on the severity and type of psoriasis. Some psoriasis is so mild that the person is unaware of the condition. A few develop such severe psoriasis that lesions cover most of the body and hospitalization is required. These represent the extremes. Most cases of psoriasis fall somewhere in between.

What is Acne?


Acne vulgaris is one of the world's most common skin conditions and results from obstruction, bacterial colonization and inflammation of the sebaceous follicles.


The main cause of acne stems from an abnormal amount of bacteria, mainly propionibacterium acnes (P. acnes), resulting in inflammatory acne.

Acne affects between 85-100% of adolescents by the age of 24 years and has been shown to affect up to 50% of adults over 25 years. It usually appears on the face, chest, back and limbs, and can produce life-long scars, physically and emotionally.


Phototherapy


When patients have psoriasis that does not respond to topical medications alone or have lesions that are too extensive for topical treatment, phototherapy becomes an option.


During phototherapy, the patient's skin or just the lesions are exposed to ultraviolet light. Patients usually receive treatment in a dermatologist's office or psoriasis clinic.


The types of phototherapy used to treat psoriasis, include:

  • Excimer laser
  • Psoralen + ultraviolet light A (PUVA)
  • Ultraviolet light B (UVB) phototherapy
