Skin Worries and Concerns

Dry skin conditions

Dry Skin Conditions.

Eczema

This is a chronic skin condition that causes the skin to become itchy, reddened, dry and cracked. Eczema usually develops in the creases of your skin, such as the front of your elbows, behind your knees, the front of your ankles, around your neck or around your eyes. During a flare-up, atopic eczema can cause the skin to become extremely itchy, red, hot, dry and scaly. It may also be weeping and swollen. Although there is no simple cure for atopic eczema, the symptoms of an eczema flare-up can usually be eased with a variety of treatments.

Psoriasis

This is a skin condition in which skin cells reproduce too quickly. It can start at any age, but most often develops in adults under the age of 35. The symptoms are dry, red lesions (known as plaques) which are covered in silver scales. They normally appear on the elbows, knees, scalp and lower back, but can occur anywhere on the body. The plaques are normally itchy, sore or both. In severe cases, the skin around your joints may crack and bleed. Psoriasis is not contagious and most people are affected only on small patches of their body.


Both Eczema and Psoriasis can respond well to dermalux phototherapy.
