Eczema is a very common skin condition that can be experienced by up to 1 in 5 children in the UK. Psoriasis is a related but more severe and rarer condition associated with other serious health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.
Eczema commonly shows itself as patches of skin that become inflamed, itchy, cracked and rough while psoriasis symptoms are very similar but more painful. Both typically affect the outside of the elbows, knees or scalp.
The most common form of eczema is officially called atopic dermatitis and involves the immune system. Most people with eczema develop this before the age of 5 and half of those will continue to have symptoms as an adult.
Eczema typically cycles through times when symptoms worsen followed by periods of improved symptoms. This can be triggered by:
Certain foods such as nuts or dairy
Physical irritation - such as scratching
It is important to address the symptoms of eczema as they can be very uncomfortable and can lead to skin infections if improperly managed.
Rightdose supplies moisturising treatments designed for daily use to repair the skin's moisture barrier as well as eczema solutions for baths, showers, and more. These are powerful options designed to manage eczema and psoriasis symptoms to help you live your life to the full.
