• no, its not the same..heres a link with more information about psoriasis.
  • Could you mean "Psoriasis"? Psoriasis is not the same as Eczema: 1) "Eczema is a general term for rash-like skin conditions. The most common type of eczema is called atopic dermatitis, which is an allergic reaction. Eczema is often very itchy and when you scratch it, the skin becomes red and inflamed. As many as 15 million people in the United States have some form of eczema. It occurs in adults and children, but most often appears on babies. You are more likely to have eczema if you have a family history of the condition. Although the exact cause is unknown, eczema is not contagious. Eczema can’t be cured, but it can be managed, and you can learn to avoid the things that trigger it." Source and further information: 2) "Psoriasis (say "sor-eye-ah-sus") is a condition that affects your skin and causes thick red marks that look like scales to form. The thick scaling is due to an increase in the number of skin cells. Sometimes pus-filled blisters form. Most of the time, the skin on the elbows and knees is affected, but psoriasis can occur anywhere on the body, including the scalp, fingernails and mouth, and even the skin over the joints. Psoriasis tends to run in families and it usually appears between the ages of 15 and 35. Doctors now believe that psoriasis starts with the immune system. T cells, a type of white blood cell, usually protect the body against infection and disease by attacking bacteria and viruses. However, when you have psoriasis, your T cells mistakenly attack your skin cells instead. Your body then produces other immune system responses, leading to swelling and rapid production of of skin cells. Certain things that can cause the psoriasis to get worse include: Infections Disease that weaken the immune system Stress Certain medications" Source and further information: 3) Further information:
