Frequently Asked Questions

What is eczema?

Eczema is a skin condition that causes patches of skin to become dry, flaky, irritated and cracked.

It usually affects the front and back of knees and elbows, but it can occur on any part of the body.

Eczema tends to first occur in childhood and is a long-term skin condition that can cause discomfort, but some people find that they grow out of it as they get older.

Certain irritants and germs can cause symptoms of eczema to worsen, so it is essential that you keep your skin clean and hydrated.

There is no cure for eczema, but there are several steps you can take to help manage your skin:

  • Moisturise your skin - use moisturisers, ointments or lotions that contain emollients to lock in moisture, prevent your skin from drying out and reducing the need to itch
  • Avoid itching - itching the skin can cause germs to infect the skin, making symptoms worse
  • Avoid long, hot showers/baths - hot water dries out the skin
  • Use a soap substitute - harsh soaps can strip the skin of its natural moisture which can exacerbate symptoms of eczema
  • Use an emollient bath oil - it will prevent your skin from drying out in bathing and can help to manage symptoms of eczema

If your eczema is severe speak to your doctor, who can prescribe a suitable treatment.

What is psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a dry skin condition which is similar to eczema in a lot of ways but causes slightly different symptoms.

When you have a flare-up of psoriasis you’ll experience red, flaky, irritated skin which is covered in silvery scales.

Psoriasis causes an increase in the production of your skin cells, and this build-up is what causes the silvery scales that are a tell-tale sign of this condition.

Psoriasis is a chronic condition which does not currently have a cure, but it can be managed with treatments like Betnovate, other topical steroids, and vitamin D.

What is the difference between eczema and psoriasis?

Eczema and psoriasis are both common skin conditions that can easily be confused with each other.

The symptoms are similar and they can both appear in similar parts of the body.

 

The differences between these two conditions can be subtle.

Eczema causes red, inflamed skin that is usually extremely itchy.

Psoriasis usually causes well-defined patches of redness and the skin is thicker and more inflamed than with eczema, with more of a burning sensation than just an itch.

 

Eczema usually appears on parts of the body that bend, like the inner elbow, behind the knees, wrists, ankles, or on your neck.

Psoriasis often shows up on the palms of your hands, your elbows, knees, scalp, face, lower back, or on the soles of the feet.

How can emollients help me to manage dry skin and eczema?

Emollients and moisturisers help to ease your eczema symptoms by hydrating your skin, helping to keep your skin soft and controlling your flare-ups.

 

Emollients work by forming a protective layer over your skin which helps to keep moisture from escaping, hydrating your skin from the inside out.

 

Some emollients also contain ingredients which can protect your skin from irritants like soap or detergents, taking a two-pronged approach to managing your eczema flare-ups.
